Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room--sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. . .
So when her father''s best friend, Matthew, goes missing from his upstate New York home, Mila and her beloved father travel from London to find him. She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past--slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when she''s closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.
