What you don't know can kill you. In Texas a serial killer is executed, taking to his grave the identity of his only child. In Boston a nine-year-old girl is abandoned in a hospital, then adopted by a wealthy young couple. Twenty years later, Melanie Stokes still considers herself lucky. Until ... Until the terrifying visions begin. Until a has-been reporter starts investigating her past. Until the first note arrives saying, "You get what you deserve." Melanie had lost all memory of her life before the adoption, and now someone wants to give it back. Even if it includes the darkest nightmare the Stokes family ever faced: the murder of their first daughter in Texas. As Melanie pursues every lead, chases every shadow in the search for her real identity, two seemingly unrelated events from twenty years ago will come together in a dangerous explosion of truth. And with her very life at stake, Melanie will fear that the family she loves the most may be the people she should trust the least.

A 28-year-old woman who has never had a job, and cannot remember anything before she was 8 and adopted into a family of selfish, spoiled, dysfunctional brats. Some of the characters are interesting, but the book is a little heavy handed in the "greed is bad" theme. The mystery is why the characters cannot figure it out, and why the author takes us down so many wrong turns after she has let us know who done it. It is on my worth reading list only because it was entertaining if not engaging.

I loved it. The pace, the setting, the ways all the mysteries revealed themselves. This book was definitely a page turner.

A pretty great Lisa Gardner. The mysteries were very compelling and the characters were intriguing.
