It has been a bit since we heard from Mr. Landay, but he is back with a story of murder and loyalty.
A mother vanished. A father presumed guilty. There is no proof. There are no witnesses. For the children, there is only doubt. From the New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob. . . .
November of 1975. Ten-year-old Miranda Larkin comes home from school to find a quiet house. Her mother, Jane, is missing. No signs of a struggle and her purse is still in its spot.
What happened to Jane? Did their father have something to do with it? Are they eating breakfast with a killer? He is, after all, a criminal defense lawyer. This is kind of his field.
But an entire lifetime will go by before they have any answers. The problem is that there is no evidence. None. As usually happens, the public forgets about the crime, and the police have nothing.
Until they do.
Twenty years go by before they find Jane Larkin. The police are back looking at motives and suspects. Have the children been living with the person who killed their mother the entire time?
A story about murder, loss, vengeance, and loyalty. How do you choose sides when it is your parents?
