The last of her line, she faces a momentous choice: expose a long-held family secret, or take it with her to her grave.

Two years after the day that her son, Matthew, was kidnapped in broad daylight, Alexandra Moreland is still torn between hope and despair. As no trace of Matthew was ever discovered, she found it impossible to give him up for dead. But now, on what would have been Matthew's fifth birthday, photos surface that seem to show Alexandra kidnapping her own child. Hounded by the press, under investigation by the police and attacked by her angry ex-husband, Alexandra sets out to discover who is behind this cruel hoax. Now she is putting herself - and those she loves most - in mortal danger.
