"An appealing and inventive novel…original and cathartic."—Dana Kennedy, New York Times On February 16, 1944, Anne Frank recorded in her diary that Peter, whom she at first disliked but eventually came to love, had confided in her that if he got out alive, he would reinvent himself entirely. This is the story of what might have happened if the boy in hiding survived to become a man.

Ellen Feldman's latest thriller is like a good bed--strong, comfortable, warm, with all the corners neatly tucked in. Former television news producer Bailey Bender now works in a bookstore, dates a recovering alcoholic, and yearns for the baby boy she gave up for adoption 20 years ago. An old friendship gets Bailey involved in a murder case involving a rich Long Island family, which turns out to be as interestingly dysfunctional as Bailey's own. The situation gives Feldman the chance to show off her ease at creating characters with depth. --Dick Adler
