This is a heart-wrenching story about the investigation behind the kidnapping of eleven-year-old Lucy Devlin and reporter Clare Carlson’s will to help Lucy’s Mom, Anna, make the world never forget Lucy. Anna still believes Lucy is alive. She is single and dying of cancer. The last thing she wants is to hear that her daughter has been found alive and well. With no family or friends to enlist, Anna reaches out to Clare, who was the original reporter on the Devlin case. In fact, Clare even won a Pulitzer for her reporting on the story. Now, more than ten years later, Clare is pulled into digging deeper into the case and finds out there is much more to the story than a simple kidnapping.
What I really loved about this book was the emotional attachment the author made the reader have to his main character. Clare’s soft spot for Lucy and her mother is nothing to ignore. Clare’s own character unravels throughout the story, and we start to see more of her true self and why this investigation is so important to her on a more personal level. I gave this book five stars for its solid storyline, well-developed cast of characters, and fabulous twists and turns throughout the plot. Well done, R.G. Belsky. I look forward to Clare Carlson #2.
