Set among New York's competitive media elite, Lynn's debut novel is part detective story, part cautionary tale. Young and in love, David and Jessica have an enviable life-until David returns from a trip to find his wife missing. Jessica's keys and wallet have been left behind, and there is no evidence of a struggle; in fact, there's no evidence at all.

Though Lynn is a keen observer with a fluid prose style, Now You See It is short on suspense. But it succeeds in its larger goal: to remind us to slow down and appreciate what's truly ours.
