The subject of the novel is a woman, Annalee Ahlberg, who has parasomnia and disappears one night. She sleepwalks all too often, but only when her husband is away. Finally after months and years he hasn't traveled for his job as a professor, he goes to a conference in Iowa, and she disappears and is presumed missing or dead.

Her two daughters, Lianna and Paige, are looking for answers and clues to her whereabouts as the novel opens. Paige, especially, is concerned and willing to swim the river near where a scrap of her nightgown was found.

Enter detectives and police including one detective, Gavin Rilker, looking for information.

Told through Lianna's perspective, the story is told including a possible romance between Lianna and Gavin. Despite Lianna's pushing for information, Gavin doesn't give up information about the case.

Eventually, months later, Annalee's body is found, but there are more questions than answers for Lianna and her family. Yet, Lianna keeps trying to figure out more about her mother's death.

Complex and disturbing, full of lies and half-truths, this novel is interesting for various reasons, one of which is the snippets of a journal describing parasomnia and its manifestations.

Mailing this book without reading it as my part of a book trade. (My house is on the market and there is no way to read all the books in my house before moving them on. I feel that if I am meant to read this book, another copy will magically appear at some point.)
