Abstract:

It takes more than a lie to hide the dark secrets of this picture-perfect family. When the granddaughter of one of Florida's most powerful judges disappears, it triggers a personal trauma for Detective Alice Garner: the kidnapping and murder of her own child. As a flood of painful memories comes rushing back, Alice sees herself in the guilt-ridden and emotionally fragile mother Charlotte Burke, who has become the target of a rush to judgment. All too familiar with Charlotte's situation, Alice is reluctant to cast any blame. Her gut instincts tell her that Charlotte's anguish is rooted in something else-somewhere too dark for the truth to be seen. And Alice believes that it's hiding behind the facade of the illustrious and guarded Burke mansion. But uncovering Charlotte's past comes with a risk. For Alice's own life is becoming entangled in the secrets and lies of the picture-perfect family-an image that is about to be shattered in so many unexpected ways.
