The case is cold, and the evidence McCone begins uncovering is chilling. Secrets kept for two decades now emerge to create a portrait of a woman who's perfect on the surface and anything but a paragon beneath it. And when someone takes potshots at McCone to scare her into dropping her inquiries, the detective's resolve hardens. She intends to uncover the truth - the whole truth - even when it awakens her suspicions that the bonds of marriage can easily become chains, and that escaping them may lead to desperate acts...or murderous ones.

Great book in the long-running series
If you like Marcia Muller you will like this book. I have read only a few of her books and I don't remember liking those as much as I liked this one. Sharon McCone, the story's main P.I., is an enjoyable character. She is tough and smart, but very human, as well. There is quite a lot of her personal life in the book, but that didn't bother me or digress too much from the mystery.
I loved the mystery of what happened to the missing woman all those years ago. It kept me listening on and on, well past my bedtime.
If you don't know Marcia Muller's work, I think this would be a good introduction into the series. Just don't worry too much about all the family and friends you are introduced to in the beginning and you'll do fine.

Another GREAT Marcia Muller book!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to this book in a couple days - any chance I got I listened. I kept thinking it was ending but just keep on going stronger.
