Summary
"Daniel Abend is a psychoanalyst in New York City with a successful practice and a normal life: an apartment on the Upper West Side, a beautiful teenage daughter, a peaceful existence. When one of his young patients commits suicide, it is a tragedy, but one easily explained by her depression and drug addiction. And then, shortly after, he receives an ominous note that makes him question the patient's death. A few days later, his daughter abruptly disappears. With a steady flow of mysterious notes showing up in his mailbox from an unknown sender, Daniel finds himself caught up in an increasingly elaborate search for his daughter, and for the truth, a search that stretches back decades--when he was a young man living in Paris, falling in love with a woman who would ultimately upend his life. With lyrical prose and masterful plotting, this is a sophisticated, surprising literary mystery about the profound questions of what it means to love, to betray, and to forgive" --
Summary
A successful Upper West Side psychiatrist begins to doubt a young client's suicide when he receives the first of an ominous series of notes by a sender who kidnaps his daughter and shares clues leading him back to a love affair in Paris that upended his life decades earlier
