Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.
When a five year old girl goes missing in broad daylight, and no one’s stories line up, it’s a race against time.
When detective team A.L. and Rena are assigned the case, they learn that everyone has buried secrets. They know that very few children are abducted under these circumstances by strangers, and a ten year old cold case in a nearby town is eerily similar. But the grandmother insists that she dropped the child off and released her to the teacher. The teacher insists that is not the case. The parents are fighting. There is a mysterious vagrant. The grandmother has a shady past of her own.
There were so many threads of possibility in this story, they kept me on my toes. My initial suspicions proved correct, but not in the way I thought.
If you like fast-paced crime stories that will challenge your powers of deduction, you’ll love this one.
