(From the publisher):
Maggie Cady is living the perfect life.
Her husband, Sam, is her soul mate: a kind and loving husband, a supportive partner. Her four-year-old son, Jimmy fulfills in her a lifelong desire to be a mother. The life they have built together in New Orleans means everything to her. And Maggie has never been happier.
It's also the perfect lie.
When Jimmy is kidnapped in a violent attack on their home, Maggie realizes her past has caught up with her -- a past she has kept a secret from her husband, from everyone. And the only way to save her son's life is to step straight back into a world of violence and deceit, a world she once barely escaped with her life.
As the pampered daughter of a Mafia kingpin, Maggie witnessed the destruction of her family -- of everyone she had once loved -- because of the lies and treachery her world was built on. After a bloodbath that left her father and brother dead, she escaped, letting everyone she loved believe she was dead. Now someone has found her and they are using her son to draw her back into the danger zone. The only question is why.
Sam Cady had the perfect wife.
In an instant, everything Sam has always believed, everything he and Maggie have built together, is shattered. Because his son has been taken right out from under his watch, and his wife has disappeared, leaving behind only clues that she is not what he thought she was.
Now all he has is questions.
Sam follows Maggie to New York, barely staying one step ahead of the FBI, who seem to know more about his wife than he does. And as he moves closer to finding Maggie, he begins to understand that the woman he is chasing is a stranger. And that his son may have to pay the ultimate price for his mother's secrets.
