From New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author Joy Fielding comes an edge-of-your-seat thriller that asks: how much do you really know about your own family?

"Devon is dead, Marcy."
"You're wrong. She's here."

When Marcy Taggart goes to Ireland after divorcing her husband of twenty-five years, a chance encounter catapults her entire life into turmoil. Years earlier, her daughter, Devon, disappeared in the icy waters of Georgian Bay after a canoeing accident, her body never recovered. But on a day trip to Cork, Marcy is certain she spots Devon walking down the street. When her daughter disappears into a crowd, Marcy begins a desperate search to find her -- and to uncover the disturbing truth that might, in the end, be her only salvation. Exhilarating and engaging, this is Joy Fielding at her best -- delivering a pulse-racing, tension-filled read.

I couldn't put this book down. The writing wasn't the greatest but the story was gripping. I thought the ending was rushed and a bit of a cop-out, but I'd read another by this author. Good for a quick read if you like mysteries!

Was no impressed! It was a little boring and long. I thought it might have had a better ending but noooooo.

I found this to be a pleasant read. Just the right amount of mystery and surprises. Going to be looking for more from this author.

I once heard this author speak and I swore I would never read her books again. A real lightweight.

If you're looking for a really good mystery book, forget about this one. The plot was without special merit, Mary was a boring and repetitive heroine. constantly returning to the belief that her daughter had not died. It was a challenge to finally complete the book. My comment: "What a waste of my time!" Fielding did insert a lot of history of Ireland into the story but didn't add to the essential plot of the book. I could very well rent a book about Ireland, didn't need to find it here.

A quick read on a wet day.Must admit I skip read it in parts as I found it a bit uneven.The descriptions of Cork were very good and at times the book was gripping

Too much past and present going on. She's always thinking and talking to herself and it was very annoying. Could have done a better job with less pages.

Quite the page-turner. I was done before I knew it. The ending was a little silly but worth the couple hours of reading. I sided with the main character since she thinks like I do (hehe). Get it, it's entertaining.

Canadian author Joy Fielding’s latest book is a gripping suspense story set in the Irish city of Cork. Marcy Taggert travels to Ireland alone, seeking solace for a broken heart. Her marriage has ended after the loss of her twenty-one-year old daughter, an apparent suicide. Only her upturned canoe was found floating in Georgian Bay.
Despite her family’s insistence that Devon is dead, Marcy thinks she sees her daughter on a day trip from Dublin to Cork. She returns the next day to launch a desperate search to discover the truth. She meets an assortment of interesting characters, some sinister, but the reader is never sure where this story is taking them.
I haven’t read Joy Fielding’s novels in a long while, and am pleased to find that an engaging heroine and a compelling plot are still her hallmark.
