Detective Jones Cooper had lived in The Hollows his entire life – his wife Maggie had left when she was younger to head to NYC but returned when her father was dying with cancer. Now Maggie and Jones’ life was in The Hollows along with their son Ricky. Complex, multilayered and suspenseful, Fragile by Lisa Unger tells not only the story of one missing girl, but two separated by decades and the secrets kept by the inhabitants of The Hollows, New York.

When Jones Cooper was younger, he didn’t believe in mistakes. He thought that every road led you somewhere and wherever you wound up, that’s where you belonged.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Lies, Black Out, and Die For You comes a novel of corrosive secrets, tenuous connections, and the all-encompassing strength of a mother's faith. Despite their mostly happy marriage, when their son Ricky's girlfriend vanishes, Maggie and Jones find themselves at odds – Maggie is positive Ricky had nothing to do with Charlene's disappearance, while Jones isn't as sure. When Jones Cooper was younger, he didn’t believe in mistakes. Regrets were for the shortsighted, for the small-minded.

Jones Cooper, disagree on how to handle their rebellious son, 17-year-old Rick, who prefers to spend time with his band or holed up with his girlfriend, Charlene Murray. When Charlene disappears one night after a fight with her mother, Maggie and Jones wonder if she ran off to Manhattan, but are reminded of the disappearance 20 years earlier of Sarah Meyers, whose mutilated body was found after she vanished on her way home from school.

When Jones Cooper was younger, he didn't believe in mistakes. Lisa Unger brings this little town alive with flourish, probing the tragedies and the victories of the citizens of The Hollows. He thought that every road led you somewhere and wherever you wound up, that's where you belonged. In this entertaining and extremely readable mystery, Unger is able to deliver a message, one that addresses every parent’s fear, without becoming preachy or didactic.

(New York Journal of Books)Bestselling author Lisa Unger has "made her mark" (Boston Globe) and delivers another exciting blockbuster that explores one community's intricate yet fragile bonds and will leave readers asking, How well do I know the people I love? and How far would I go to protect them?Everybody knows everybody in The Hollows, a quaint, charming town outside of New York City. It's a place where neighbors keep an eye on one another's kids, where people say hello in the grocery store, and where high school cliques and antics are never quite forgotten. As a child, Maggie found living under the microscope of small-town life stifling. But as a wife and mother, she has happily returned to The Hollows's insular embrace. As a psychologist, her knowledge of family histories provides powerful insights into her patients' lives. So when the girlfriend of her teenage son, Rick, disappears, Maggie's intuitive gift proves useful to the case--and also dangerous. The investigation has her husband, Jones, the lead detective on the case, acting strangely. Rick, already a brooding teenager, becomes even more withdrawn. In a town where the past is always present, nobody is above suspicion, not even a son in the eyes of his father. Determined to uncover the truth, Maggie pursues her own leads into Charlene's disappearance and exposes a long-buried town secret--one that could destroy everything she holds dear.
  • Small town, old secrets, missing girls. Who done it?
    uhh, who cares.
    From the very beginning of this book, we're pretty sure where the road is going to lead.
    The problem is, the journey on that road is pretty predictable and uninteresting enough
    to make us feel a little indifferent.
    One missing girl ignites an avalanche of ugly memories and guilt when
    another girl goes missing years later.
    Everybody in this little town is connected by either teen-age lust or old high school resentments.
    The town shrink is married to the town police detective who used to date...well,
    you get the idea. All are enmeshed in some kind of dysfunctional relationship and
    the author spends way too much time getting to the root of it all.
    You find yourself muttering "move ON with it "
    Cookie cutter characters and soap opera dialog complete this dismal picture

  • This was a great book, that I literally finished minutes ago. The back and forth between the past and present was easy to follow. The characters are well developed and you can appreciate who they are and how they got there. I like that the characters are all connected in some way. It sounds like a great little town I'd love to live in (well with Southern California weather). There are 3 mysteries in here for you to follow and try to figure out. Probably not an easy thing for a writer to do but Lisa Unger has done a great job. The reading was easy, only a couple of big words I had to look up (glad I have the kindle version), its easy to follow without a lot of extra words and crap that authors sometimes put in there just to fill a page. I'm excited to see that there is a Jones Cooper Book 2 and will be buying it right away. Give this one a chance.

  • I barely have the words to describe the journey that I was on while reading this book. Lisa Unger's great talent with story line, careful, understated descriptions and lessons that we all can understand as part of the human connection snagged me from the opening words and didn't release me until the final words of the book. My best recommendation regarding this book is READ IT and learn more about yourself along the way. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing the depths of your understanding of how fragile our lives really are and how quickly a decision made in a moment can affect the future of us and those around us.

  • Sorry about my title--I couldn't think of any other way to put it. This novel aspires to be more than just genre fiction, so I guess I'm holding it to higher standards. But even as a mystery, it was only okay. There were things I liked about it. One of them was the interlace style that other readers seemed to find annoying. I liked that destabilizing shiftiness, the way the past intruded on the present. I didn't find it hard to follow at all. By the time things get really shifty, the story's almost over--by then, the reader should be in a more accommodating mood, it seems to me. The writing was good, which is to say, it didn't bother me. I'm pretty picky about that. I don't like books that are over-written, either--this one hit the right tone and style, I think. Other things I liked:

    The Hollows--a mythic place, close to but far from the big city (read: the real, unmythic world). Everyone there has only one child! I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but it really stuck out to me. There are no siblings in the Hollows, except for the villain and his sister, who only appears at the end. I guess the only child motif is supposed to accentuate the fragility of the family itself. Lose that child, and you're not a family--just a couple. The Hollows is a state of mind more than an actual place--like the Magic Mountain, with less interesting people. The hollowed-out place in our minds and memories where we hide things.

    The characters--I found them mostly realistic, their reactions plausible. I didn't especially like Maggie or her husband, but the teenagers sprang to life for me...except that the author doesn't seem to know much about Facebook. People write on Walls, not "Message Boards." Not a big deal.

    Things I liked less:

    The old mystery seemed unoriginal. And implausible, too. She didn't make it work for me, I guess. And the straw man--the guy who died in prison--was really a cheap way out of the problem, plot-wise. No spoilers, but she could have done better here.

    Maggie and her husband. Both the kind of parents I'd avoid at the PTA. If, you know, I belonged to the PTA.

    The social and economic structure of the town seemed absurd. Other readers have mentioned this. If it's mythic, make it mythic. If it's supposed to seem real, make it real. Maybe that was the point, but it didn't work.

    Overall, it was an entertaining read. But it didn't make me think, and I doubt I'll remember much about it a year from now.

  • I felt bogged down by this novel and was frustrated that it took me over a week to read it. I wanted so badly to like this book because the time I'd invested to read it, but I just didn't. The suspense just wasn't there for me--I kept reading, even though I already knew how the book would end.

    The Hallows is a small town in New York where everyone each other and has since childhood. Many of the characters in this book are VERY dysfunctional and no one seems to have the smarts to get out of his or her own way. The disappearance of a young girl from this close-knit community dredges up secrets and memories of another young girl that went missing some 20 years prior. The author switches back and forth between in telling the story through flashbacks and telling the story in the present tense. This for me was very tedious and annoying. I never was very sure where I was in the story and always felt like I had missed something.

    I have another Lisa Unger book in my To Be Read pile, and I'll wait on that one for awhile. I may give her one more chance--in case this was a fluke, but not for awhile...

  • It takes a while to warm up to the characters and understand how they fit together. Mid book, it was hard to put down. Thank you, Ms. Unger, for a book that is not only entertaining, but makes you think about the path not taken.
