Harvard librarian Hester Thursby knows that even in the digital age, people still need help finding things. Using her research skills, Hester runs a side business tracking down the lost. Her new case is finding the handsome and charismatic Sam Blaine.

Sam has no desire to be found. As a teenager, he fled his small New Hampshire town with his friend, Gabe, after a haunting incident. For a dozen years, Sam and Gabe have traveled the country, reinventing themselves as they move from one mark to another. Sam has learned how trusting wealthy people can be-especially the lonely ones-as he expertly manipulates his way into their lives and homes. In Wendy Richards, the beautiful, fabulously rich daughter of one of Boston's most influential families, he's found the perfect way to infiltrate the milieu in which he knows he belongs-a world of Brooks Brothers suits, Nantucket summers, and effortless glamour.

As Hester's investigation closes in on their brutal truth, the bond between Sam and Gabe is tested and Hester unknowingly jeopardizes her own safety. While Gabe has pinned all his desperate hopes of a normal life on Hester, Sam wants her out of the way for good. And Gabe has always done what Sam asks . . .

every character is depraved in some way. I found it hard to relate to or feel interested in any of them. the story was compelling, I'll give it that. I didn't bother finishing it though.

Starts well, but becomes a bit fanciful as the plot develops. Sped up the narration to 1.2 times to get it finished.

To be honest, this is not a captivating story. The body of it doesn’t really mirror the blurb. I’m at chapter 8 and whatever the tale is, it hasn’t started yet! It’s part of the Audiobook Club, so I feel no compunction to finish it. I didn’t really notice the narrator, so I’m guessing that she was good. (I know that that sounds like backhanded praise, but I would definitely have picked up if she was deficient in any way).

While this book was not a happy one, I thought the story was original and the reader did an excellent job with the narration. I thought the ending was quite interesting too and look forward to more books in the series.

Unusual heroine - I imagined her as a young Hettie (Linda Hunt) from “NCIS Los Angeles” minus weapons. Riveting story with a history that was revealed slowly. Able narrator who two year old voice is imprinted on my memory saying “ freezing my tits off!”

I really enjoyed this character with her many righteous warts. The story was always a surprise which I don't say often.
