Publisher's Summary

More than a year ago, Natalie Gordon went to buy a balloon at the Thanksgiving Day parade and dissolved into thin air. The police and a private investigator still have no leads. So when Natalie's despairing husband pleads with ex-nun Christine Bennett to help, she can't say no. Not only are Natalie's present whereabouts a mystery but so is her past. Someone has stripped her personnel file in her old office. Even her husband knows strangely little about her. Starting with a cardboard box of Natalie's belongings (a few books, keys, some cosmetics) Christine searches for a life someone has tried very had to erase and finds a cast of characters so chilling that murder seems not only inevitable but likely to happen again.


What the Critics Say

"Intriguing mystery." (Midwest Book Review)
"Susan O'Malley narrates this puzzling mystery in a straightforward, no-frills style...[that] matches the characteristics of her detective, Chris Bennett Brooks, who is a policeman's wife and former nun. Brooks approaches the task of finding out what happened in a painstaking, no-nonsense manner, which is interesting but not melodramatic." (AudioFile)

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The dialogue sounds more mid-1950s than early 1990s. Perhaps, though, this is because the main character was raised and studied in a convent.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator's delivery made the characters sound older than they are.

A fun Mystery!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was a lighthearted mystery that kept me curious the entire time! The reader does a great job with the different character's voices, and it was an all around fun "read".
