When Geniver Loxley lost her daughter at birth eight years ago, her world stopped--and never fully started again.

But then a stranger shows up on their doorstep, telling Gen the very thing she's always wanted to hear: that her daughter Beth was not stillborn, but was taken away as a healthy infant and is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found.

Mystery thriller about a disconsolate woman who finds out from a stranger that 8 yrs ago her baby had been born alive and not stillborn. Ultimately she begins to suspect that her husband and girlfriend - along with their doctor - may have played a part in the deception. After meeting her husband's ex-coworker at party - she later confides her fears to him - they probe deeper they a trail of deception, lies and bribery while their lives are in danger.
Good story , had me enthralled about two-thirds into it but lost me on the way because of the rather bland ending.

There are a few interesting episodes, but mostly this book is like a script for another television series.

Great plot line, full of unbelievable twists and turns, marred by weak characters and immature writing.
