Overview

Mallory McGill has no idea how she got to Coney Island Creek. The last thing she remembers is traveling to the hospital to deliver her baby. Now her baby is missing, and she is being accused of committing an unspeakable crime.

For Teri Cardello, a tough detective who has no tolerance for anyone involved in crimes against children, McGill is guilty, and there's no doubt in her mind. But her partner Sam Rothman, who once let an innocent man go to his death, refuses to be so easily convinced. "Either that girl is the worst liar in the world, or everyone else is lying and she's telling the truth," he says.

Why can't Mallory remember that fateful night? Could she have killed her baby, or is someone trying to frame her?

Someone knows the answers to these questions, and will stop at nothing—including murder—to prevent her from learning the truth.

    ugh

    i was intrigued by this book because of its title. i grew up going to coney island and some of my favorite childhood memories are of Nathans hotdogs, fries in a paper cone in a paper bag that you'd shake to distribute the salt, eaten with a red plastic pitch fork (you will never taste fries that good in your life!) and i love the wonder wheel with it's unique swinging inner cars (i would cling to my father for dear life)....i couldn't wait to read this book and looked forward to feeling as though i was in the story with what i thought would be gritty brooklyn attitude and language. what a disappointment. the story is predictable and the dialogue is awful. i only finished the book because i kept waiting for the familiar feeling and a "yeah this is brooklyn" vibe. with 2 law enforcement officers in my life (nypd and nyc sheriff's dept.) i dare you to walk into any precinct in the city of new york and hear any cop having a conversation about the yankees and the mets exclaim one team will kick the other's butt in inter-league play. the dialogue is unrealistic, the only thing familiar about the setting was a bunch of street names, i never felt like the setting was familiar at all except for the fact that coney island is run down and the houses around it are a bit seedy. i live 20 minutes away from coney island and i still felt flat with the description of the area..........to sum it up......way too predictable and not enough area flavor.........a shame because coney island as a setting has a lot to offer in a plot like this.

    I enjoyed reading this book. The plot was well thought out, and

    I enjoyed reading this book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were real. I also loved that it was set in Brooklyn; this is one of the few books I've read that was in a familiar location.
    I am definitely looking forward to reading more books by this author!
