Claire Doucett is devastated ever since her daughter, Ruby was abducted seven years ago in New Orleans. Dave, Claire's ex-husband works as a private investigator after he left the police force after that tragic incident and bury his sorrow by drinking. And his relationship with Claire worsen after he is involved with his former police peer Angelette Lapierre under the influence of his drinking, thus leading to a divorce by Claire but then she isn't entirely happy with her remarried life either (she is in the middle of a divorce).

Then Claire sees a doll in a shop window and is mersmerized by it, for it looked a lot like her missing daughter, with its frilly dress and all. Alex, her soon-to-be ex husband thinks she is obsessed with finding her daughter despite all the years, but she thinks otherwise and tells herself she would get to the bottom of it. So she approaches Dave whom is involved in an investigation when Angelette told him about Graydon Losier's missing daughter and asked if he could help. From then, the tension begins to build.

Readers will no doubt follow this taut suspense thriller, with the chapter begins with a thief stealing the doll. While reading this book, I really sympathize with Claire of losing her daughter, and not to mention I admire the way how she took it despite all the years and hasn't really given up hope... This is the first book I read by Amanda Stevens and it surely won't be my last.
