Booklist Review: "Another chilly thriller (following The Other Mrs., 2020) from New York Times best-selling author Kubica. People disappear without a trace, more often than we would like to believe. A profusion of domestic secrets lurks behind the disappearance of three people in an upper-middle-class neighborhood in the Midwest. First, Shelby Tebow, the mother of a newborn baby, goes missing. Her abusive husband is immediately suspected. Soon after, just blocks away, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish. The police come up empty-handed, and the cases go cold. Shockingly, Delilah staggers home after being locked in a basement for 11 years. Just how far will some people go to hide the nasty business in their pasts? That question is finally answered here in an impossible-to-see-it-coming manner, devastating for everyone, including the reader. Kubica is known for her unpredictable stories, and this time out she takes readers to a whole new level of deceit and irony. Recommended for fans of Lisa Unger's Confessions on the 7:45 (2020)."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Eleven years after the disappearances of new mom Shelby Tebow, doula Meredith Dickey, and Meredith's six-year-old daughter, Delilah, shook their tranquil Chicago suburb, troubling questions linger about just what happened to them in this daringly plotted, emotionally eviscerating psychological thriller from bestseller Kubica (The Other Mrs.). Out of the blue, Meredith's husband gets the call that will upend his life again: Delilah has been found. However, the traumatized, emaciated teen subsequently brought to the house bears little resemblance to the Delilah he remembers, other than her distinctive red hair. As usual for this author, much suspense stems from her storytelling sleight of hand, particularly the way she leaps forward and backward in time as well as among half a dozen distinctive if not always reliable narrators, who include Shelby, Meredith, and Delilah's younger brother. Though a couple of the final megatwists prove more shocking than convincing, Kubica's plumbing of the darkness lurking beneath the shiny suburban dream should please her fans and draw in new ones. This is definitely one of her better efforts. Agent: Rachael Dillon Fried, Sanford J. Greenburger Assoc. (May)"
