What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman

This is a unique mystery. This is one of those books that tells the story in the present and the story of the past at the same time. Lippman is an excellent writer and events are revealed slowly. The reader is left in suspense and wants to know what happened. There are major twists in the plot but the book is also rich in character development. The story involves a woman who has a hit and run accident and at the police station admits that she is the youngest of the Bethany sisters. The two sisters were abducted when they were a preteen and teenager. The book details the psychology of the fallout to the parents, the girls, and the abductors. It's very interesting but rather dark.
