A suspenseful story. I doubt many parents could positively state how far they would go in crisis situations unless they've lived them. The main issue herein: Is it better to be the parent or the buddy? Not as good as other books by Scottoline that I've read.

Excellent plot line, EXCEPT the ending. Author doesn't explain how the wife conveniently goes from telling her husband "it's over," "I want a divorce," to magically showing up just in time to foil the bad guy. It's as if the wife completely forgets that she kicked her husband out. Author also never explains why mother & son even decided to show up at the bad guy's in the first place.

Far too pat an ending, far too quickly, without even attempting to tie up loose ends. Disappointment from a usually good author.

If the book kept to its title, trying to keep quiet about a life changing event, it would have kept my interest. However, convenient plot contrivances (of the TV movie variety) ruined this book for me.

Didn't take long to figure out someone else killed the girl. So many lies, so much deceit. Did not care much for this book.

This books makes you wonder how far would you go to protect your child. What would you do in a situation that the Buckman's faced??

Not exactly my cup of tea being All American teenage and parental angst with the team sports thrown in but... the story-line was well sustained and it would likely make a good movie of that genre.

Great read! At first, it seemed like maybe I had read this book before but I knew I hadn't. There are some interesting twists to this one.

When I first started this book, it upset me and wasn't sure I could finish it. But I did and was thankful because it ended well. This author writes amazing stories! Please read this book!
