Nicole Foster has her faults but in the end she does what is best. The main portion of the story revolves around a murder investigation intertwined with Nicole Foster's own life. What a fantastic read. I have been following and reading Gregg Olsen books for a very long time and hope to read lots more. Thanks for another wonderful book.

As the case starts to unravel and Nicole learns the horrible truth of the toddlers death her own life starts to unravel with the presence of her sister whom she hasn't seen or heard from in years. We learn her father is in a care home, Alzheimer's. Her mother, a narcissist abandoned them all when she was a child. Her sister, who's her father favourite is just like her mum, a narcissist that always gets her own way even if it's by committing murder. Nicole is the guardian of her sisters daughter. Although wrong, Nicole tells the child her mother is dead, believing she would never darken their door again. Nicole was wrong.
I really enjoyed this book. I picked it up after reading the review of a friend, curious if I saw the same kind of view he did about the author and female lead. Nicole is such a strong female lead in the book that I do agree that forgetting the author is male can be done. I find most times that a male author doesn't nail female lead as well as Gregg Olsen did. That isn't a dig at other male authors at all so please don't take it that way 😊.
The book wasn't fast paced like I expected it to be. But a nice slow gradual undertaking of all events, past and present taking place. A novel idea which I have never seen done before in any other books I have read is the way the author did the opening scene and the end scene. Nicely done 😊.
