A 28-year-old woman who has never had a job, and cannot remember anything before she was 8 and adopted into a family of selfish, spoiled, dysfunctional brats. Some of the characters are interesting, but the book is a little heavy handed in the "greed is bad" theme. The mystery is why the characters cannot figure it out, and why the author takes us down so many wrong turns after she has let us know who done it. It is on my worth reading list only because it was entertaining if not engaging.

I loved it. The pace, the setting, the ways all the mysteries revealed themselves. This book was definitely a page turner.

A pretty great Lisa Gardner. The mysteries were very compelling and the characters were intriguing.
