Synopsis

ONE COLD NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED....

New York Police detective Dave Strauss is haunted by the one case he couldn't solve. A schoolgirl vanished off the streets of Brooklyn, with only a trail of blood and a series of untraceable phone calls from "the Groom" hinting at her fate. Now the cold dark night has engulfed another young girl--but this time she is part of Dave's family. He and his wife, Susan, know fourteen-year-old Lisa has not run away, and they know her disappearance is not just a tragic coincidence. And once the first phone call comes, they know she's not alone.

Good book until last 50- pages then GOD appeared and everyone, and I mean everyone, collapsed into people who need forgiveness even though they were the athiests in the 1st place!!! A really crude sevmon to right a percieved threat? None of the above. Just a writer who can't keep a story good to the end

A wonderfully descriptive word picture, that pulls your emotions through a roller coaster. Ripping it bear as you recognise images of your own life reflected on the page. The drama and suspense, pushing you to solve the mystery before the next page is turned. A story you should read to remind yourself how precious lifes memories are. And how important each experience is to living. This is a story I could not put down...

This was my first Katia Lief novel. The premise was clever and original, the main characters were well drawn and engaging, and there were interesting twists as the plot unfolded. My one problem with the book was that there was too much emphasis on emotional upheaval. I recognize that we need to know the interior lives of the central characters but I prefer a different balance between what they are feeling and what they are doing.
