A young boy dies, another goes missing, and one mother’s choice will forever alter many lives When Benet’s young son dies on the operating table, she cannot be comforted—not even by her mother who cares for a young boy just about the same age. Meanwhile, another mother’s son goes missing, and police circle around possible suspects in what must be murder. These three mothers—the schizophrenic Mopsa, upwardly mobile Benet, and gold-digging Carol—become forever entwined by death, delusion, kidnapping, and murder, and one woman’s loss becomes another’s gain. With deft characterization and keen insight, Rendell presents a complex, real exploration of morality and a mother’s love in this Crime Writers’ Association Macallan Silver Dagger award–winning novel.
