Publisher's Summary

What’s a desperate mother to do when her child suddenly disappears? Anything it takes to keep the family together in USA Today bestselling author Alison Gaylin’s short story with a sting.

It’s dreaded news for actress Lyla McCord and her husband, Nolan. Their eight-year-old daughter has vanished. To find her, Nolan reaches out to a psychic gifted with uncanny visions about the lost girl. But Lyla thinks she sees right through him. Is he a con artist or the real thing? Either way, he might be telling the truth. And that’s too frightening for Lyla to bear.

Alison Gaylin’s The Gift is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.

Really Great Listen!

This narrator was excellent as Cassandra Campbell always is. I've never read anything by this author before but she really packed a lot of mystery into an hour. The plot, the twist, the surprise ending! A great way to spend an hour!

The Gift

I am loving the Hush series, this one was very short, but was a very good story. You had to see between the lines. The narration was good.

Surprise ending!

A good listen for anyone who likes suspense, although it was difficult to like the MC.

Twisted Gift

I didn't want to read another missing child story but since this is a short, I decided to give it a go. When the child of two movie stars goes missing they must drop everything and do anything to find her. An encounter with a psychic leads to unexpected paths. The story works but since I don't want to give away the twist I can't post my one problem in this review. Cassandra Campbell is wonderful and silky smooth as always. Great tale for when you simply must do the errands.

Enjoyble story, unexpected ending

The ending made me wish there was a sequel to know if she ever tells her daughter the truth. The narrator was complimentary to this reading.
