When Hope was 6-years-old, her twin Felicity was kidnapped and never found. As an adult, Hope is a Family Court judge and her husband Edward, a defense attorney, and they have a daughter named Krissy who is now 5-years-old. Krissy has just gone missing. Both parents search their past of enemies (products of their professions) to find clues to locate their daughter. They also wonder if there is a connection between Felicity's kidnapping and Krissy's.
This audioread almost received a 4/5 (very good) rating, but the ending had a component I didn't believe. However, it's one of those things that I would ask myself, "Who am I to know if that's how a person would act?" Also, I was on the fence regarding a member of the Forensic Instincts group - a psychic. I don't know if I like that input or not - in regard to advancing the story. It seems like a cop out to use a psychic to give us clues. Overall, I really enjoyed the plot and look forward to the second in the series.
