SOMETIMES THERE'S NOTHING HARDER TO CONCEIVE THAN THE TRUTH
Leading lives of wealth, power, and privilege, Millicent and Stuart Colbert have it all...except a child. Considering Greta Hammond as a surrogate mother, they hire detective John Marshall Tanner to do a background check, stipulating that Greta must never know their identity. With some misgivings, Tanner undertakes the investigation and gives Greta the all clear: the Colberts' embryo is implanted in her womb.
Two months later, Greta suddenly disappears. And the search for answers not only takes Tanner deep into the Colbert family's haunting legacy, but also leads to shocking revelations about the case...and about himself.
