All That Is Mine I Carry with Me by William Landay


One afternoon in November 1975, ten-year-old Miranda Larkin comes home from school to find her house eerily quiet. Her mother is missing. Nothing else is out of place. There is no sign of struggle. Her mom’s pocketbook remains in the front hall, in its usual spot.
So begins a mystery that will span a lifetime. What happened to Jane Larkin?
Investigators suspect Jane’s husband. A criminal defense attorney, Dan Larkin would surely be an expert in outfoxing the police.
But no evidence is found linking him to a crime, and the case fades from the public’s memory, a simmering, unresolved riddle. Jane’s three children—Alex, Jeff, and Miranda—are left to be raised by the man who may have murdered their mother.
Two decades later, the remains of Jane Larkin are found. The investigation is awakened. The children, now grown, are forced to choose sides. With their father or against him? Guilty or innocent? And what happens if they are wrong?

My Review

 In November 1975, young girl returns home after school to find her mother is not there, Miranda never sees her mother again. Police are called, searches are made, but no Jane, and then the case goes cold.
This story is told from several points of view, even Janes, so now we know, but her family does not.
You need to keep turning the pages, and they go fast, you need the answers, and they came, but with surprises, right to the end!
This is a different mystery, and one I did enjoy, just know that this is not your typical thriller, but it is good!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Random House, Ballentine, and was not required to give a positive review.
