Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling Author Wendy Corsi Staub is the master of psychological suspense. Here, she delves into the twisted mind of The Angler, who lures his human prey the way he catches fish. Sometimes, he gets one worth keeping...for a little while....

No such thing as coincidence....

Staring into his frightened blue eyes, investigative genealogist Amelia Crenshaw Haines vows to help this silent little boy who is unable - or unwilling - to communicate his past. Though her own roots remain shrouded in mystery, she relies on tangible DNA evidence to help fellow foundlings uncover theirs...until a remarkable twist of fate presents a stranger bearing an eerily familiar childhood souvenir. 

NYPD Missing Persons Detective Stockton Barnes has spent his career searching for other people’s lost loved ones and outrunning a youthful misstep. Now a chance encounter with a key player from that fateful night leads him on a desperate quest to locate the one woman he’s ever regretted leaving - unless a savage killer finds her first. 

As Amelia and Barnes uncover intertwining truths - and lies - the real horror emerges not in crimes already committed, but in evil yet to come....

Poor writing, great performance.

The writing just isn't all that great. I had a hard time being involved. The actual narration was great.

I'm having trouble with this one.

I normally like Wendy Corsi Staub. But this one is dragging. I feel like it keeps on going over and over the same things, repeating topics. There's a serial killer/child molester who keeps popping up but I'm halfway through the book and I still don't know how he fits in with the many other characters, and there are many. I can't attach to any of these people. It needs to improve and soon.

The narrator, tho, is excellent. If she wasn't, I probably wouldn't have gotten this far in the book.

I'll update this review when/if I finish the book.

Update: The book didn't get any better. It ended suddenly and I'm still lost on the plot of the book. Was it the serial killer, was it whatever happened in Cuba, was it figuring out who were the parents of various people in the book, was it the "lost" children? I never did identify with any of the characters. The woman you'd expect to be strong wasn't, the woman who was strong was annoyingly strident and bull-headed.

I finished the book out of determination, but I wouldn't recommend it.
