What the Dead Know

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Thirty years ago two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall. Their bodies were never found and those familiar with the case have always been tortured by these questions: How do you kidnap two girls? Who—or what—could have lured the two sisters away from a busy mall on a Saturday afternoon without leaving behind a single clue or witness?

Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters. But her involuntary admission and subsequent attempt to stonewall investigators only deepens the mystery. Where has she been? Why has she waited so long to come forward? Could her abductor truly be a beloved Baltimore cop? There isn't a shred of evidence to support her story, and every lead she gives the police seems to be another dead end—a dying, incoherent man, a razed house, a missing grave, and a family that disintegrated long ago, torn apart not only by the crime but by the fissures the tragedy revealed in what appeared to be the perfect household.

In a story that moves back and forth across the decades, there is only one person who dares to be skeptical of a woman who wants to claim the identity of one Bethany sister without revealing the fate of the other. Will he be able to discover the truth?

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 22, 2007 – Edgar-winner Lippman, author of the Tess Monaghan mystery series (No Good Deeds, etc.), shows she's as good as Peter Abrahams and other A-list thriller writers with this outstanding stand-alone. A driver who flees a car accident on a Maryland highway breathes new life into a 30-year-old mystery the disappearance of the young Bethany sisters at a shopping mall after she later tells the police she's one of the missing girls. As soon as the mystery woman drops that bombshell, she clams up, placing the new lead detective, Kevin Infante, in a bind, as he struggles to gain her trust while exploring the odd holes in her story. Deftly moving between past and present, Lippman presents the last day both sisters, Sunny and Heather, were seen alive from a variety of perspectives. Subtle clues point to the surprising but plausible solution of the crime and the identity of the mystery woman. Lippman, who has also won Shamus, Agatha, Anthony and Nero Wolfe awards, should gain many new fans with this superb effort. 9-city author tour.

Great Read

This was a very thought provoking book and I absolutely loved it. My only complaint would be that I wished the writer would have defined the chapter titles better as to whom was speaking and the time frame in each particular chapter...Thank goodness you can do a search to help you remember who this character is and to help remind you when you loose track! Other then that it's a great page turner!
My heart breaks for all the families who are suffering in their real lives with children missing. May God wrap His loving arms around you and give you His peace...

Not Bad

This book was pretty good. Interesting storyline & twists. Way too much detail to the characters, and some characters could have been left out. I was able to skim through much of the un-needed wording & still follow the story.

Wowza

This book was way more amazing than I had expected!
