Mystery Woman Sleuth
Mark Rubin's family is missing -- and the police can't do a
thing because all the evidence indicates that his wife left
willingly. So the successful furrier turns to Tess
hoping she can help him find his wife and three children.
Tess doesn't know quite what to make of Rubin, a wealthy
Orthodox Jew who refuses to shake her hand and doles out
vitally important information in grudging dribs and drabs.
According to her client, he and his beautiful wife,
had a flawless, happy marriage. Yet one day, without any
warning or explanation, Natalie gathered up their children
Tapping into a network of fellow investigators spread
the country, Tess is soon able to locate the runaway wife
and her stolen progeny, moving furtively from state to
state, town to town. But the Rubins are not alone. A man is
traveling with them, a stranger described by witnesses as
"handsome" and "charming" but otherwise unremarkable to
these casual observers, who have no way of sensing the fury
beneath his smooth surface.
The motive behind Natalie's reckless flight lies somewhere
in the gap between what Mark Rubin will not say and what he
refuses to believe. An intricate web of betrayal and
vengeance is already beginning to unravel, as memory begets
rage and rage leads to desperation -- and murder. And
suddenly much more than one man's future happiness and
stubborn pride are in peril; the lives of three innocent
children are dangling by the slenderest of threads.
