Fresh from a tour promoting her last book, reclusive true-crime writer Lydia Strong receives an anonymous cry for help, begging her to find and protect Tatiana Quinn. Maybe the plea strikes close to her heart; maybe her investigator’s intuition ignites. She takes it on.

But this simple case of a missing teenager soon becomes much more. Someone wants Lydia to drop the case, someone anxious enough to engineer the reappearance of one of Lydia’s most dangerous adversaries. Now, in addition to tracing the roots of Tatiana’s disappearance on a trail across the country and eventually overseas, Lydia must find the man who wants her dead.

“The suspense is almost unbearably high . . . an intelligent thriller, with a love story [that] adds a poignant and beautiful relief to the omnipresent evil that pervades the rest of the pages.” — New Mystery Reader

    " This is the second novel Lisa Unger wrote. I am enjoying reading them in order that they were written. This is definitely a dark mystery, quite an story. It's interesting to watch how Jeffrey and Lydia's relationship develops, and their different styles in solving the case. Starte 8/14/12 "
