The secrets of a picture perfect family are exposed in this “tour de force”* thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner.
Ten minutes after walking the elite Back Bay townhouse and investigator Tessa Leoni already doesn’t like what she sees. Signs of an abduction. Clearly the work of professionals. At best, the entire family has been kidnapped. At worst…
The more Tessa learns about the Denbe family, the less she likes their chances. What might have looked like the perfect existence—a powerful CEO, his adoring wife, their angelic child—is not what it appears. Husband, wife, daughter—magazine perfect, but each hiding dark secrets…
Tessa knows more than she’d like to about families riddled with lies. What she doesn’t know is where the Denbes are and if any of them are still breathing. She’ll have to climb over unbending feds and territorial local cops to find out, and if she’s not fast, the Denbes’ chances of survival will quickly become little more than touch and go...

Touch and Go
Just read 2 of your books, Gone, and touch and go. Girl, you have a killer imagination. No pun intended. I've read quite a lot in my time, so it takes a really good writer to get my attention, and I love mysteries. All I read, really. So I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed both books, and I am really looking forward to reading the next book. Going back and catching up.

Surprising twists and turns. Lisa is way ahead of you and misleads you at every opportunity.
I loved this book. Loved the writing which at times was very sensual in describing moments in time, both from the past and present stories. I could feel the moment and in one line you could taste it: Pain has a flavor. But hope does, too.
I loved the character of Libby and how she moved away from her role as a victim. We are awed by such a life of luxury as this family had and it can often blind us to the fact that all that glitters is not gold. The psychological back stories were intriguing and really did give me a feel for the characters. I felt like I had a vested interest in their outcome. The twists in the storyline are also great. One minute I felt fear, the next I was cheering and this up and down continued.
This was the first book that I have read of Lisa Gardner’s. I have no idea how I could have overlooked this writer but I am so happy to have found such a good author with numerous books to her credit (which guarantees me some good reading material coming up).
