- A huge storm had just started and she figured she'd have trouble driving home in this snow squall.
- She was one of 13 people who had entered the store at ten AM that morning right before the storm started.
The very basics of the story is outlined on the back of the book and on Gardner's website, let me paraphrase:
An entire family disappeared without a trace, with no witnesses, no motive and no ransom demand. Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life that looks good in the pages of a glossy magazine, with their gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street, their seemingly perfect marriage and their beautiful fifteen-year old daughter, Ashlyn. But when the entire family disappears without a trace, PI Tessa Leoni must discover their innermost secrets and race against the clock to try and rescue them before their perfect life goes up in smoke.
