Using her skills and contacts from her past career as an Assistant District Attorney, Susan draws nearer to the killer, but exposes herself to the same deadly danger as the cruise ship victims. Click here to see the rest of this review The review of this Book prepared by tesubcalle Susan Chandler talks about a disappearance on her morning radio talk show.
Chapter One Three years later Barring a blizzard or something bordering on a hurricane, Dr. Susan Chandler walked to work from her brownstone apartment in Greenwich Village to her office in the turn-of-the-century building in SoHo.
A clinical psychologist, she had a thriving private practice and at the same time had established something of a public persona as host of a popular radio program, Ask Dr. Susan, that aired each weekday. The early morning air on this October day was crisp and breezy, and she was glad she had opted for a long-sleeved, turtleneck sweater under her suit jacket.
Her shoulder-length dark blond hair, still damp from the shower, was windblown, causing her to regret not wearing a scarf. She stopped for a light at the corner of Mercer and Houston.
In another hour they would be teeming with Monday morning, back-to-work New Yorkers. She had spent most of Saturday and Sunday in Rye with her mother, who had been in low spirits -- understandably so, Susan thought, since Sunday would have been her fortieth wedding anniversary. Then, not helping the general situation, Susan had had an unfortunate encounter with her older sister, Dee, who was visiting from California.
I dearly love both my parents, Susan thought as she reached her office building, but there are times when I want to tell them to please, grow up. Susan was usually the first to arrive on the top floor, but as she passed the law offices of her old friend and mentor, Nedda Harding, she was startled to see that the lights in the reception area and hallway were already on.
She knew Nedda had to be the early bird.
As usual, Nedda was concentrating so intensely that she was not even aware that Susan was standing there. Nedda was frozen in her usual work pose, her left elbow on the desk, forehead resting on her palm, and her right hand poised to turn the pages of the thick file that was spread out before her.
One of the most respected defense attorneys in New York, her somewhat grandmotherly appearance offered little indication of the cleverness and aggressive energy she brought to her work, never more apparent than when she cross-examined a witness in court.
The two women had met and become friends ten years ago at NYU, when Susan was a twenty-two-year-old second-year law student and Nedda was a guest lecturer.
In her third year, Susan had scheduled her classes so that she could work two days a week clerking for Nedda.
Her smile was brief but warm. Good weekend, Susan, or should I ask? I told Dee her depression was only making it harder for Mother to cope, and she blasted me. When I said that my shoulder is getting arthritic from all the tears, Dee got even angrier.
But at least Mom laughed. Just put it on my tab, good friend, along with all I owe you already for getting me the radio job. And by the way -- have I said thanks recently?

Donald Richards, a psychiatrist specializing in criminology, has written a book called Vanishing Women. Many of the cases he solved, but a number of interesting ones are still open. He covers the background of each woman and the circumstances under which she vanished.
