A struggling, single mother, Emma sometimes wishes that her thirteen-month-old son Ritchie would just disappear. Then, one quiet Sunday evening, after a sinister encounter on the London Underground--Ritchie does just that. Emma immediately reports his abduction to the police but there she faces a much worse situation than she ever imagined. Why do the police seem so reluctant to help her? And why do they think she would want hurt her own child? If Emma wants Ritchie back, she'll have to find him herself. With the help of a stranger named Rafe, the one person who seems to believe her, Emma sets off in search of her son.

I'm not at all into babies or motherhood, but this book gave me the shivers!

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Fast-paced and thoughtfully plotted -- I blazed through this in a day! Despite having a twist that could be spotted from space, it was still a great read. Taylor's characterization is especially strong. Would recommend."
