Maggie McGill, a psychotherapist living in Florida, visits her 30-something daughter, Allie, in California. She is looking forward to a couple of uneventful weeks of vacation with her daughter. Almost immediately upon deplaning, curious coincidences begin to occur. Observant Maggie notes the presence of several sinister dark-skinned, turbaned, Arab-looking men and wonders about it. Unexplained falling rocks threaten Maggie as she sits on a bench; the wife of a French tourist who was on the same plane as Maggie disappears.
Later, while in an art gallery a stranger warns Maggie to “stay out of things that do not concern you. Give us the picture. Forget the French couple. Go home. You have been warned.” Huh? Maggie and Allie have no idea what that means. Allie’s beautiful house overlooking the sea is broken into and trashed – obviously someone is looking for something.
I highly recommend this delightful, first-of-a-series book.
