Summary

A Rush/Chinbroski Novel, Volume 1 
During a rare Texas freeze, Detectives Greg Rush and Rick Chinbroski investigate the discovery of a woman found dead in her bathtub. She is encased in ice with a cellular phone positioned against her ear.  A note left at the scene of the crime leads the detectives to determine that they are not the only ones on the killer's trail.  A woman, it seems, is desperate to help the police catch him...but only when she decides it's time. More notes, written in an obscure American dialect, follow, leading the detectives to California, where the woman reveals her identity...and that of the monster they are hunting.

    Laura Lippman, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of The Most Dangerous Thing, I’d Know You Anywhere, and What the Dead Know, returns with an addictive story that explores how one man’s disappearance echoes through the lives of the wife, mistress, and daughters he left behind. 
    When Felix Brewer meets Bernadette “Bambi” Gottschalk at a Valentine’s Dance in 1959, he charms her with wild promises, some of which he actually keeps. Thanks to his lucrative—if not all legal—businesses, she and their three little girls live in luxury. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi’s comfortable world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes. 
    Though Bambi has no idea where her husband—or his money—might be, she suspects one woman does: his mistress, Julie. When Julie disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she’s left to join her old lover—until her remains are eventually found. 
    Now, twenty-six years after Julie went missing, Roberto “Sandy” Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web stretching over three decades that connects five intriguing women. And at the center is the missing man Felix Brewer. 
    Somewhere between the secrets and lies connecting past and present, Sandy will find the truth. And when he does, no one will ever be the same.

    However, Jessica is soon running for her life when events mimic that of her protagonist.

    If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?
    
    Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods. It was on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, and a woman was sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm, and she probably would have been hurt herself if she’d stopped. Not only that, her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home.
    
    But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car; if she took her pills; even the alarm code.
    
    The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.
    
    And the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…
