What the Dead Know
by Laura Lippman
Summary: After a terrible car accident, a mysterious woman tells the police that she is one of the long lost Bethany sisters. The Bethany sisters, Sunny and Heather, have been missing for almost 30 years. As the police question this woman's identity and her clues only lead them to dead ends, the police and the girls' mother make one last effort to find out the truth.
Review: This is the first book where I didn't like any of the characters but still enjoyed the book as a whole. I found it hard to empathize with any of the characters: the parents who demolish their lives after the girls are gone, the detective with only one thing on his mind, and the mysterious woman who manipulates everything she touches. The strength of this book is the plot, a twisty mystery that keeps the reader thinking and wondering what will happen next. Rating: *** out of 5
