Richard Kilmer is in love, and after proposing to Jennifer Ryan, she takes him on a drive up to Kendrick Falls. Rumor has is that no man has ever gone to the falls with Jen and come back the same, and Richard is no exception. Halfway up the mountain, Richard loses control of his car, and it rolls. Richard is shaken, but Jen is gone, completely missing. He can't find her, and neither can the police once they're on the scene. In fact, no one in Richard's life will even confirm Jen's existence. But where could she have gone?
Has Richard lost his mind or is someone else behind it all? David Rosenfelt's stunning new thriller about an ordinary man who is forced to play a terrible game will have readers holding on tight.
"Starred Review. ...may strike some as contrived, but all will marvel at the way Rosenfelt builds suspense while keeping the plot line from veering too far into the kooky and hokey." - Publishers Weekly
"[A]long the way to a solution, a couple of significant holes in the storys infrastructure appear. Never mind. The novel still works a spooky turn on the old chestnut, and readers will enjoy being mystified one more time." - Booklist
"Starred Review. This bald plot summary fails to do justice to Rosenfelt's skill at throwing one baffling curve ball after another in a gripping thriller driven by questions of identity, the reliability of memory, and the difficulty of distinguishing between reality and fantasy. " - Library Journal
"Starred Review. The creator of dog-loving attorney Andy Carpenter serves up another stand-alone with an absolutely irresistible hook." - Kirkus
