From critically acclaimed, multiple-award winner Laura Lippman comes a riveting story of love and murder, guilt and innocence
Two little girls banished from a neighborhood birthday party find an abandoned stroller with an infant inside on an unfamiliar Baltimore street. What happens next is shocking and terrible, causing the irreparable devastation of three separate families.
Seven years later, Alice Manning and Ronnie Fuller, now eighteen, are released from kid prison to begin their lives over again.

And now another child has disappeared, under freakishly similar circumstances.
