One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn't add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister's return might just be the beginning of the crime.
Emma In The Night tells the story of Cassandra and Emma Tanner who went missing three years ago. When Cass shows up at her mother’s house without Emma, it sends folks into a tailspin. One in particular who is Dr. Abigail Winter who was one of the FBI agents in charge of the investigation at the time of the initial disappearance and is now a forensic psychologist.
Where Is Emma? Where have they been? And why did they leave are just a few of the many questions we need answers to and those answers make this a compelling read for me. I had to slow my reading down because I was so caught up in the story, and I didn’t want it to end. The book had some very unlikable characters like a step-brother for one and the mother. Author Wendy Walker presented them in a way that had me wanting to know more about them. I don’t know when I have read a story about a dysfunctional family that I WANTED to continue reading about as I did with this book.
Ms. Walker writes an excellent page turner and does a great job of showing the feelings, emotions, and actions of all the characters that I highly recommend. I also look forward to more books by Wendy Walker.
