While effective as a page-turner, the novel also tells a timeless, universal tale of a woman’s journey toward self-acceptance. An exciting tale of past crimes and dangerous friendships.” —Kirkus Reviews“Laila Levin is an I.T. executive in Austin, TX, with a happy marriage and a successful career. But her life is about to get much more complicated. Laila is forced to confront a dark part of her past that she never shared with her husband. . . . Readers, particularly those who remember the late 1960s, will find this an entertaining read.”—Publishers Weekly????? “I love a mystery and I love stories about the late 60s/early 70s and this book has both! Really fun read."—Barbara Gaines, Executive Producer, The Late Show with David Letterman????? “GONE GIRL in the sixties.” —Amazon Reviewer????? “Its one of those books that takes two different time periods in a womens life and as the story unfolds weaves them together gradually in a very clever way. Reznik uses a great technique going back and forth constantly building suspense along the way. … As someone who is selective about what I read, this book didnt disappoint. Great mystery and suspense. Add a star if you were a " flower child " from the sixties. — Les Goodstein, Former President and COO, New York Daily News
