Thriller Psychological | Suspense
On a July afternoon two little girls, banished from a
birthday party, take a wrong turn onto an unfamiliar
Baltimore street - and encounter an abandoned stroller
with a baby inside it. Dutiful Alice Manning and
unpredictable Ronnie Fuller only want to be helpful, to be
good. People like children who are good, Alice thinks. But
whatever the girls' real intentions, things go horribly
awry and three families are destroyed.
Seven years later Alice and Ronnie are heading home again -
only separately this time, their fragile bond long
shattered, their secrets still closely kept. Advised to
avoid each other, they enter a world where they
essentially have no past. In exchange, they are promised a
fresh start, the chance to mold their own future.
That promise is broken when a child disappears, under
disturbingly similar circumstances. And the adults in
Alice's and Ronnie's lives - the parents, the lawyers, the
police - realize that they must now confront the
shattering truths they couldn't face seven years earlier.
Or another mother will lose her child.
Homicide detective Nancy Porter was a rookie cop when she
solved the original case with a bit of freakish luck - and
almost derailed her own career. Adept at finding the small
things that can make or break a homicide case, now she
must master the larger picture in order to understand
where guilt truly lies. For no one is innocent in this
world. Not even the children.
