Summary
The death of Jessica Burke was easy to explain: a history of depression, a heroin habit, a girl alone in her bathtub. But when her psychoanalyst, Daniel Abend, receives an ominous, handwritten poem, he quickly realizes that this was not just an overdose. As a second and third missive arrive from the same mysterious source, and his daughter abruptly disappears, Daniel finds himself the subject of an elaborate and calculated torment, one that reaches back decades, crosses oceans, and begins with a chance encounter with a beguiling girl in a Paris stairwell
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
