The Jackson women, Indiana and Amanda, have always had each other. Yet while their bond is strong, mother and daughter are as different as night and day. While her mom looks for the good in people, Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature--as is her father, the SFPD's deputy chief of homicide. Brilliant and introverted, Amanda is a natural-born sleuth addicted to Ripper, the online mystery game she plays with her beloved grandfather and friends around the world. When a string of strange murders occurs across the city, Amanda plunges into her own investigation. But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana suddenly vanishes. Now, with her mother's life on the line, the young detective must solve the most complex mystery she's ever faced before it's too late.

The start of the book was rather slow / boring. It doesn't get interesting until murder 3. Amanda was a brat throughout most of the book. The things I enjoyed most was the mystery itself and the dog. I agree with some readers that state that the book could have been shorter.

I found that the back stories of the various characters broke the flow of the story. Good narration and great ending.

I usually enjoy Allende's books but not this one. The story is far fetched and implausible. I found myself continuously scoffing at the plot and was hard pressed to finish this book. Finish it I did in the hope that it would improve but it didn't. It's a total let down compared with her usual engaging stories.
