action-packed short story from a master of character, crime, and urgent
Will Trent, a dedicated agent with the Georgia
Bureau of Investigation for fifteen years, knows that there’s definitely such a
thing as a cop’s intuition—which is why he should have listened to his own.
in a restroom at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Will
overhears a girl’s pleading, plaintive voice: “Please, I wanna go home.” Something
isn’t right here, thinks Will. He feels it in his gut. But he waits too
long to act, and now the girl and the anxious, angry man she’s with have
disappeared into the crowds at the busiest passenger airport in the world.
a desperate search, and with time running out, Will makes a call to his
supervisor, Amanda Wagner. Will’s partner, Faith Mitchell, immediately sends
out an abducted child alert. The entire airport will soon be grinding to a
halt—almost 100 million passengers a year; five runways; seven concourses; 6
million square feet of space sprawled across two counties, three cities,
and five jurisdictions. All this is shut down on a dime because Will has a hunch that
he is certain is true: a girl, maybe six or seven years old, has been snatched. And he intends to bring her back—no matter what it takes.
