When her six-year-old nephew vanishes from a neighborhood carnival, Aubrey Lynd’s safe, snow-globe world fractures; it shatters when the FBI’s investigation raises questions about her own family that Aubrey can’t answer.
Aubrey picks apart the inconsistencies to expose the first of many lies: a ransom note—concealed from the FBI—with a terrifying and impossible ultimatum. Aubrey doesn’t know what to believe or whom to trust. The abduction is clearly personal—but why would someone play a high-stakes game with the life of a child? The more she presses for answers, the more Aubrey is convinced that her mother is hiding something.
Desperate to save her young nephew, Aubrey must face harsh truths and choose between loyalty to her family and doing the right thing. And she’d better hurry, because vengeance sets its own schedule, and time is running out.
The story starts off with a grandmother and her grandson at a carnival, the grandson is having the time of his life and then suddenly he disappears from his grandmothers sight. Diane is frantic trying to look for him and when she doesn't find him she immediately calls the cops.
Someone Must Die is told in two points of views, Diane and her daughter Aubrey. Aubrey, who is majoring in psychology, was a big help to the FBI and the police, she was smart and diligent and I actually hope this turns into a series because I really want Aubrey to solve cases with a certain someone as her partner.
Throughout the story so many secrets are revealed from people's past that had me shocked, I was reeling from everything . You didn't know who the kidnapper could be, I usually solve mysteries in a book easily but this one had so many could-be kidnappers that had me turning the page trying to figure out who it could be.
If you love mysteries this is definitely a book you want to pick up asap.
