Publisher's Summary

Real estate mogul Sean Jackson is throwing himself a splashy 50th birthday party, but trouble starts almost immediately: His ex-wife has sent his teenage daughters to the party without telling him; his current wife has fired the nanny; and he's finding it difficult to sneak away to his mistress. Then something truly terrible happens: one of his three-year-old twins goes missing. No trace of her is ever found. The attendees of the party, nicknamed the Jackson Associates by the press, become infamous overnight. Twelve years later, Sean is dead. The Jackson Associates assemble for the funeral, together for the first time since that fateful weekend. Soon the barbed comments and accusations are flying. By the end of the weekend, one will be dead. And one of Sean's daughters will make a shocking discovery.

Narrator was excellent
The story was fantastic!!! I thought I guessed what happened then it twisted and I saw I was wrong until boom it retwisted and I was mostly right but shocked non the less
I am being cryptic because I do not want to give even a glimpse away.

What to think about this one?

I've had to let this book digest before writing a review. I love this author and it pains to say that I was a bit let down with this novel. Objectively speaking its excellent. There is expert writing, characters are fully developed, and I'd recommend it to anyone. However, I did have the following dislikes: never being able to fully empathize with any character, slow at times, two other mysteries left dangling, the change in retelling present and past a couple of times gave me whiplash, but what baffled me the most is how two amateur psychologists, who admit to knowing the DSM by heart, couldn't find more fault in our criminal. For me, this is a good, solid book and one I would recommend, it must be I expected something different.
