Twenty-four years ago, five-year-old Tori walked into her newborn brother's room in the middle of the night to see a shadowy figure abducting him.

The next morning, her baby brother’s lifeless body was found in the crib.

No one believes what she saw that night. Not her father. Not her mentally unstable mother. Not the police. In fact, there’s even some suspicion that Tori is somehow involved.

Years later, Tori is stuck in a job she hates, hiding from her past, afraid to let people get too close. Until her childhood friend is found with her dead newborn, claiming her “real” baby was taken by a shadowy figure.

Is the past coming back to haunt Tori? And will the truth set her free…or will it end up being more twisted than she ever could have imagined?

This book is set in modern day yet the mystery could be solved with a very simple DNA test yet the main characters, police and doctors never even think to use modern science. Where was the editor or does the author hope we are all very old or just stupid. I could not finish this frustratingly dumb book.
