Claire Cook is a smart, sophisticated woman who has married into political royalty. Her life becomes an endless schedule of meetings and “handling,” she’s no longer able to make her own choices, and she must act the perfect wife and hostess. The world doesn’t know that her husband has a deep anger focused on Claire and that he controls her every move. She plots an escape, but her carefully laid plans go awry. In an airport lounge, she meets another desperate woman named Eva. The two women decide to take one last gamble and switch flights: Claire will go to Oakland; Eva will go to Puerto Rico. But when the flight to Puerto Rico goes down, Claire realizes that Eva was not at all who she claimed to be and that Claire is still in just as much danger as she was before. Narrated by both Eva and Claire, the story moves to the past to see how these women came to their ultimate destinations.
VERDICT Clark (The Ones We Choose) is an exceptional writer who has crafted a tale about disappearing in an age when technology makes it almost impossible. Highly recommended for fans of thrillers, mysteries, and crime fiction.
