Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing. But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie's help.
Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn't she want to be found? It's time for Sunnie to face her own demons because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

I love the television show Bones but never read a book by Kathy Reichs. When I got the chance to read this stand-alone novel written by her with a pretty interesting synopsis I grabbed my change.
I liked the book. It is a captivating fast paced story aiming for a certain goal. It does have some bumps to get there.
I had a lot of trouble with Sunday. She is a strong woman, knows what she wants but it is hard to keep up with her and I felt there were some discrepancies in her story. Like there are only 2 visitors allowed and I did count three (squirrel included). Still they were not influencing the developments in the story so I did not really mind just noticed them. During the story her background is slowly uncovered and her decisions are easier to understand.
I would have enjoyed to know more about Gus and his story.
The search for Stella and the influence Opaline Drucker put on that seemed to be less important. The whole mystery seemed to be created to startle Sunday and get a clear idea what played on her nerves.
