This book started off a little slow for me, but after a few chapters I was hooked! A teenager commits suicide on the high school roof. Another teen, Adam, becomes sullen and distant, eventually goes missing. Adam's parents are frantic to reach their child, they employ GPS, trace his emails and texts and even try to follow him into a dangerous part of the city. Adam's friend, DJ, appears to be in the mix, but his police captain dad denies he ever left the house.

At the same time, a man and woman team of killers are kidnapping women and beating them to death. A neighbor boy is terminally ill and needs a kidney transplant. Transplant compatibility tests reveal that the man who thinks he is the boys father isn't really. The lives of all these families collide in tragic and unexpected ways.

I was so hooked on this book, after the first few chapters, I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one day! It was a gripping story filled with lots of interconnecting characters and a great plot.
