We meet various townspeople with motives and secrets of their own who might be involved in the disappearance or its aftermath.
As the mystery of Daniel’s disappearance deepens, Joshua and Nathalie struggle to find new meaning in their existence and to discover if their fragmented marriage can ever be made whole again.

“Efrem Sigel does much more than chronicle a father’s frantic search to discover what happened to his teenage son. With sensitivity and grace, he charts the range of emotions that this crisis triggers, revealing the inner workings of the hearts of the parents and the darker side of life in their seemingly idyllic summer home in Western Massachusetts. A taut, highly-charged drama, filled with both nightmares and dreams.”
“This is a gripping, suspenseful and lyrically moving novel about the ultimate domestic nightmare: the vanishing of one’s child. Sigel knows how to sustain tension but more so, how to get inside the heads and hearts of good people overwhelmed by catastrophe. It is, finally, a love story, all the more powerful for its complex exploration of how human beings can endure the savage pain of loss.”
“Anthony Heald is a most expressive audio book narrator. He conveys the sadness and strength of the characters and is equally good in describing the settings, whether the seasons in Massachusetts or the furniture in a nursing home. He also masterfully and easily voices differences in age, sex and social class in subtly distinctive ways.”
