Publisher's Summary

A terrified 3-year-old boy is found clinging to a wire fence at the side of a country road. His mother had whispered to him to never let go, then she vanished. The only clue found by authorities as to the child's identity is a photograph of two summering teenage girls and a letter presumably written from one to the other. Sixteen years later, Walker Devereaux is in Toronto to discover the truth about his biological mother, of whom he has a dim memory. Working as an after-hours cabdriver, Walker befriends Krista, a demanding, pretty, wheelchair-bound night dispatcher. Krista and Walker become fast friends, and she can't help but involve herself with Walker's quest to understand his shrouded identity.
Soon enough, though, their off-hours sleuthing turns perilous. Walker and Krista's wooded countryside veers this duo ever closer to that of another abandoned boy who has transformed himself into the embodiment of his own desperate, violent, and sinister pathologies.

A mesmerizing book with totally believable story lines filled with jealousy, insanity, and unrelenting suspense. The plot was intricate, filled with insightful flash backs and colorful characters. A must listen.....

Odd but Interesting

I gave this book a four star rating because I thought it was good enough to keep my attention most of the time, and had an interesting premise, as a young man begins to find his roots. The twists and turns as the gentle main character searches for answers to his past were captivating and surprising with each turn. Sometimes I found myself not listening, as the story slowed down to a dull roar, but then it would pick back up again and grab me. The reader was pleasant and fit the tone of the mystery to be told.
