Publisher's Summary

Twenty-five years ago Katie ran away from home and never came back. But now she's suddenly reappeared in her best friend Olivia's life - in the form of a chilling confession. Olivia's father-in-law, wracked with guilt, says he murdered her all those years ago. Tom suffers from Alzheimer's and his story is riddled with error and confusion. Except for one terrifying certainty: he knows where the body is buried.
As Olivia and the police piece together the evidence, they are left with one critical question. They have a crime, they have a confession, and now they have a body - but can any of it be trusted?

A Very Good Mystery!

This is a real mystery--kept from listeners until the final 20 minutes of the book! Hurray! That makes this one a winner despite a few little shortcomings. The main character gets her knickers in a twist over and over as she makes assumptions that are gradually proven false. Not the brightest bulb in the box as female characters go, but that's a small complaint. This is a complex plot with wonderful twists and turns and truly excellent narration. Well worth the time and credit.

Original plot

I wouldn't ordinarily give such a high rating to a book that annoyed me so much, but this one does have redeeming qualities. Lots of twists and kept moving along really well - every time I thought the story was detouring into some unnecessary verbiage, something actually did come out of it. And the reader did a great job of portraying the drama queen protagonist, whom I particularly disliked. I probably could have rated it higher, even, if I hadn't resented the author's portrayal of the two female protagonists as so stupid and/or irrational. I mean really, the two little girls seemed more emotionally mature than the mothers. Being female myself, I'd rather the females were portrayed in a more positive manner. But at least the real killer wasn't exposed until the end, and I didn't guess it earlier, and I do like that about a mystery.
