About This Book
Claire is only seven years old when her college-age sister, Alison, disappears on the last night of their family vacation at a resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X. Several days later, Alison's body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay, and two local men, employees at the resort, are arrested. But the evidence is slim, the timeline against it, and the men are soon released. It turns into national tabloid news, a lurid mystery that will go unsolved. For Claire and her parents, there is only sad return home to broken lives. Years later, riding in a New York City taxi, Claire recognizes the name on the cabbie's license. The driver, Clive Richardson, is one of the men originally suspected of murdering her sister. The fateful encounter sets Claire on an obsessive pursuit of the truth. Not only to find out what happened the night of Alison's death but also to answer the elusive question: Who exactly was her sister?
