"A well-told story, one of Ms. Whitney's best."
THE CHATTANOOGA TIMES
Seven years after her child had been taken from her, Jennifer Blake received an invitation from wealthy Corinthea Arles, who clamed to have found her daughter. From the moment Jennifer arrived at Mrs. Arles's luxurious estate on Vancouver Island, she was caught up in events beyond her control and surrounded by people who were not what they seemed.

Phyllis A. Whitney (1903-2008) was born of American parents in Yokohama, Japan. She worked with books throughout her life as a librarian, bookseller, reviewer, writing teacher, and bestselling author. She was one of America's most successful writers of romance and suspense and in 1988 won the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America.
Anna Fields (1965-2006), winner of more than a dozen Earphones Awards and the prestigious Audie Award in 2004, was one of the most respected narrators in the industry. Trained at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, she was also a director, producer, and technician at her own studio, Cedar House Audio.
In her 32nd book, suspense master Whitney has written a disappointingly formulaic story of a Connecticut widow who stumbles into danger and intrigue seven years after the abduction of her little girl. Ever since three-year-old Debbie Blake was kidnapped, her mother, Jenny, has been trying to locate the child. Jenny receives a phone call from Corinthea Arles of Victoria, B.C., who has noticed Debbie's photo in a magazine, and who says a young girl in her household bears a resemblance to Debbie. Hastening to Victoria, Jenny discovers a strange menage. The ailing Mrs. Arles's disowned son, Edward, died during an Amazonian expedition, leaving a widow, Peony, and a daughter, Alice. Peony, her second husband, magician Farley Corwin, and Alice now live with Mrs. Arles. Jenny does detect similarities between Debbie and Alice, and she wonders whether the Corwins killed Edward, then kidnapped Debbie, giving her a false identity so they could claim part of Mrs. Arles's substantial wealth. The household servants' suspicious actions also make Jenny determined to investigate, in spite of anonymous, threatening messages that put her on guard. Even interesting sidelights about the region's lore and landmarks do not help this lackluster novel containing cliched characters and a predictable resolution.
