Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
MacDonald (From Cradle to Grave) offers a fresh, suspenseful spin on the vacation gone bad crime tale. Shelby Sloan, a well-to-do Philadelphia working woman, gives her daughter, Chloe Kenricks, and Chloe's husband, Rob, a Christmas treat—a Caribbean cruise to make up for the honeymoon the couple never had. Shelby even offers to care for their four-year-old son, Jeremy, while they're gone. Then Shelby receives a disturbing call from Rob, who tells her Chloe has fallen overboard and is missing off St. Thomas. Apparently, Chloe had been drinking. Shelby, unwilling to accept that Chloe had a drinking problem like Estelle Winter, Shelby's dying alcoholic mother, is sure that her daughter met with foul play. Shelby has further cause for alarm when Bud Ridley, a fellow Philly resident who saw Chloe the fateful night, kills himself after she questions him. The author nimbly reveals links to other murders—and to someone desperate to keep a secret. Fans of early Mary Higgins Clark will be rewarded. (Mar.)
Library Journal
The latest page-turner from MacDonald (Suspicious Origin; From Cradle to Grave) features Shelby Sloan, who raised a daughter on her own and after many difficult years now enjoys a successful career and spending time with her grandson. She purchases a Caribbean cruise as a gift for her daughter, Chloe, and her son-in-law, Rob, offering to babysit Jeremy while they're away. When Rob calls to tell Shelby that Chloe has disappeared from the ship, the nightmare is only beginning. Unable to accept that her daughter might be dead, Shelby keeps digging for the truth and uncovers a number of unhappy secrets that someone would prefer to keep safely hidden. VERDICT MacDonald's tale of domestic suspense will keep readers guessing and is sure to appeal to fans of Mary Higgins Clark and Joy Fielding.—Beth Blakesley, Washington State Univ. Libs., Pullman

    Check out this fast-paced psychological thriller written in MacDonald's exquisite style.

    I read this novel in two evenings and couldn't wait to find out how it ended. Her novels take many twists & turns & engage the reader's mind with many questions. Riveting and mind-boggling from start to finish.

    This is by far my favorite of her books! I have read all Patrici

    This is by far my favorite of her books! I have read all Patricia MacDonald books and always get them as they first come out. I could not put this one down. From the first page I was hooked and wondered through the entire book how it would all tie together. I passed this book around to several friends and they loved it too. Do not pass this book up!

    Great read!

    Totally absorbing, psychological thriller. I couldn't put it down. This author has never disappointed me. Her women-in-peril suspense novels can be quite dark. If you like Joy Fielding, you will love Patricia MacDonald.
