Booklist Review: "Allison Carpenter has survived a plane crash in the Rocky Mountains, but she knows this won't be the last threat to her life. She has information so powerful that someone is willing to do anything to keep it under wraps, even if it means burying Allison with the secrets she keeps. Meanwhile, her estranged mother, Maggie, has been told that her only daughter perished in the crash, but when no remains are found, Maggie finds a reason to hope and begins searching for anything that will bring Allison back to her. Told by alternating narrators Allison and Maggie, the story depicts the unbreakable bond between a mother and daughter finding their way back to each other despite betrayals and deceits between them. Written in a fast-paced style, each chapter offers new twists as motives are brought to light and secrets that Allison struggled to hide are revealed. Barry's debut novel will keep readers guessing to the end, and fans of Lisa Jackson and Lisa Scottoline will enjoy this thriller written with a focus on family relationships. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Woman-focused psychological suspense is hot right now, and this debut will be everywhere.--Margaret Howard Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the pseudonymous Barry's uneven debut, Maggie Carpenter, who lives in Owl Creek, Maine, is alarmed to learn from the news that her estranged daughter, Allison, has gone missing following the crash of a private plane in the Colorado Rockies. Media identify the pilot as Allison's fiancAc, Ben Gardner, the CEO of a major pharmaceutical company, though Maggie hadn't even known her daughter was engaged. Everyone insists that Allison is dead, but Maggie becomes obsessed with retracing her daughter's steps from the last two years. Soon, everything Maggie thought she knew about her daughter falls away, and she discovers a world of money, power, and deception that implicates everyone from the FDA to those closer to home. Meanwhile, Allison, who somehow survived the plane crash, battles hunger, exhaustion, and injury in the Colorado wilderness. Barry's meditations on mother-daughter relationships and female roles add much-needed dimension to an otherwise shallow plot full of predictable twists and surface-level emotion. Still, this psychological thriller is perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Claire Mackintosh. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, ICM. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
