Great story and a real page turner. There should be a sequel or back up to the book, as the author left a lot of unanswered questions. We learn "who dunnit" but I would like to know what happened and what will happen to some of the characters. A well written book. Five stars all the way.

In 1983, the three Hathaway brothers â Jed, 8, Matt, 6 and Andrew, 4 â disappeared along the banks of the Mississippi. Two of the boys baseball caps were found, but not other sign of the boys, including their bodies is every recovered. Authorities believe the boys drowned, but their mother never loses hope that they are still alive.

Anchorman Alex Collier's career as the top anchorman at a Twin Cities television station is being threatened and he is trying to re-exam what he really wants to do with his career. It's the 15th anniversary of the boys disappearance and a former news reporter encourages him to open the case and do some investigative reporting on the case.

Alex convinces the station to let him pursue the story and a reward is offered for information. His investigation leads him down paths that were previously not explored by the authorities and endanger not just him, but his girlfriend and the family of the boys, who now have two elementary school-age daughters.

I really enjoyed this book. It's very well written and is based on a true story that happened in Minnesota in 1951 when the three young sons of Betty and Kenneth Klein disappeared. They have yet to be found and their parents continue to hope that they might still be alive.

I liked Malice Intended better, but this one was quite good. Inspired by a true story, this novel is well-written and an excellent tale.

Held my attention throughout the entire book. Loosely-based upon a true story. Good character development and an interesting storyline. Would recommend this as a terrific vacation read.
