A Detroit crime reporter uncovers a kidnapping ring with ties to her troubled past in this mystery thriller by the author of Duplicity.
Crime reporter Julia Gooden had the kind of childhood some people never get over. Her conman father left when she was seven. Weeks later, her nine-year-old brother Ben disappeared. These days, Julia seems to have beaten the odds, finding happiness with her two sons and a blossoming relationship with detective Raymond Navarro.
But while investigating the death of a city councilman’s nephew, Julia comes across her estranged father—and her life is thrown into turmoil again. Despite decades without a lead, she’s never given up hope of finding her brother. Tying her father to her current investigation offers vital clues about what happened to Ben. But it also makes her a target. Now, to find the missing pieces of her past, Julia will have to risk the happy life she’s built.
