The author has crafted another masterful story. In the story Annalee Ahlberg goes missing, her children are afraid because she is a sleepwalker. Annalee is completely unaware of what she is doing or where she is while in this state. Lianna, the oldest once pulled her back from the crag of the Gale River bridge. Searchers combs the neighboring woods. Her husband, Warren, returns home from a business trip. When the police discover a small piece of fabric from a nightshirt hanging from a tree branch, all seem convinced Annalee is dead, but Gavin Rikert, the hazel-eyed detective, continues to stop by the Ahlbergs'  Victorian home.  Lianna searches for answers. Why does the detective know so much about her mother?  This well written novel about parasomnia will keep you up late reading to the very end.
