My summary: What was supposed to be a fun night out without the baby turned into the worst night of the Contis’ life. They were just going next door, it wasn’t going to be that long, they would check on her every couple of hours, she would be fine. That’s what these first time parents thought when they went to the neighbors house for dinner. When they returned home to find their precious baby taken out of their own home they were devastated. But nothing could prepare them for the worst days of their lives. Every time you thought you knew who was behind the kidnapping the author would throw in a new twist. This book will definitely keep you thinking and trying to put the clues together right up until the end and you will be in for a surprise. You will be surprised at the ending, you could have never guessed who is behind the unraveling of an entire family.
