Description

New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan weaves the intimate, unputdownable story of an investigator confronting the most important--and most dangerous--mystery of her career.

Investigative reporter Max Revere has cracked many cases, but the one investigation she's never attempted is the mystery from her own past. Her mother abandoned her when she was nine, sending her periodic postcards, but never returning to reclaim her daughter. Seven years after the postcards stop coming, Martha Revere is declared legally dead, with no sign of what may have happened to her. Until now.

With a single clue—that her mother’s car disappeared sixteen years ago in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay—Max drops everything to finally seek the truth. As Max investigates, and her mother's story unfolds, she realizes that Martha teamed up with a con man. They traveled the world living off Martha’s trust and money they conned from others.

Though no one claims to know anything about Martha or her disappearance, Max suspects more than one person is lying. When she learns the FBI has an active investigation into the con man, Max knows she’s on the right path. But as Max digs into the dark secrets of this idyllic community, the only thing she might find is the same violent end as her mother.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 18, 2018 – In the prologue of bestseller Brennan's satisfying fifth Maxine "Max" Revere novel (after 2017's Shattered), Max's mother, Martha Revere, dumps nine-year-old Max on her parents' doorstep and decamps with her boyfriend, Jimmy Truman. Over the next six years, Martha sends Max the occasional postcard, but then all communication ceases. Max's grandmother has Martha declared dead, but Max has never found evidence of foul play until she learns, 22 years after her mother left her, that a car registered to one of Martha's aliases was abandoned years ago in Jimmy's hometown of Cape Haven, Va. Max rents a house there and starts digging, but the locals aren't keen on her questions, and it seems she isn't the only person investigating Martha and Jimmy. Frequent flashbacks bring Martha and her history to life, and a harrowing, action-packed conclusion changes the trajectory of Max's future. Boldly drawn, psychologically complex characters and a multifaceted plot distinguish this entry, which thoughtfully explores the different forms that family can take.
