(From the publisher):
It seems cut and dried at first: Apparently a burglar has been caught in the act and killed by a scissors-wielding homeowner. Except that the dead man was a hired killer, not a burglar. And the homeowner is the most famous missing child in NYPD history, believed to have been kidnapped nearly sixty years ago after the massacre of her family...by an ice pick. As NYPD Detective Kathleen Mallory investigates, an astonishing story emerges, one of murderous greed and family horror, abandonment and loss, revenge and twisted love--and a terrifying secret that has yet to claim its final victim.
