This is my family: Vanished without a trace. . . . Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you'd find in the pages of a glossy magazine. A beautiful fifteen-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. This is what I know: Pain has a flavor. . . . When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes' home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted, with only a pile of their cell phones and electronic devices remaining. No witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive. Just a perfect little family, gone. This is what I fear: The worst is yet to come. . . . Tessa knows better than anyone that flawless fronts can hide the darkest secrets. Now she must race against the clock to uncover the Denbes' innermost dealings, a complex tangle of friendships and betrayal, big business and small sacrifices. Who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family? And how far would such a person be willing to go? This is the truth: Love, safety, family . . . it's all touch and go.

"From the moment you start listening to this latest by Lisa Gardner, you're hooked. For starters, the Denbe family is kidnapped by three mercenaries. The father, Justin, is head of a multimillion-dollar construction company, which hires Tesse Leone--a character from Gardner's previous LOVE YOU MORE--to find them. From there, the plot really takes off--twisting and turning while suspects abound. There's also the question about who hired the men to kidnap the family. Each of the three victims has his or her own story, and narrator Elisabeth Rogers has her own way of telling each one. Her portrayal of Libby, the kidnapped wife, is especially strong. Overall, Rogers's reading is smooth and straightforward. And when the story draws to a close, you learn there are few innocents in this plot. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
