My Review:

I highly recommend reading "Live to Tell" the 1st in the series so you know who the main players are!

Storyline:   15 yrs ago Elsa's adopted 7 yr. old son Jeremy was kidnapped in broad daylight.  20 yrs. ago Marin gave up her son Jeremy for adoption.  Elsa is in the process of adopted 7 yr. old Renny who is scared of enclosed spaces.  What she didn't expect was her nightmares to come back to haunt her which leaves her no choice but to run with Renny and her life.  She never believed that Jeremy was dead but still alive somewhere!

Marin is dealing with the betrayal and lies of her disgraced Congressman husband and being there for her daughters.  It was her husband who was behind the kidnapping and murder of Jeremy.  When a threat is directed towards her daughter Caroline she has to decide if she is just seeking attention or not.  Lauren from "Live to Tell" is the one she runs to and seeks advice.

Characters: All of the characters were well written and you got to know them.  I really connected with Elsa and Marin!

Killer: The killer was one sick person and had no remorse or feelings about killing their victims.  You learn the early history of the killer and what happened to them to make them this way!
