The fourth book in Joanna Schaffhausen's heartpounding Ellery Hathaway mystery series!After surviving abduction as a young teenager, Ellery Hathaway is finally attempting a normal life. She has a new job as a rookie Boston detective and a fledgling relationship with Reed Markham, the FBI agent who rescued her years ago. But when a twelve-year-old girl disappears on Ellery’s watch, the troubling case opens deep wounds that never fully healed.
Chloe Lockhart walked away from a busy street fair and vanished into the crowd. Maybe she was fleeing suffocating surveillance by her parents, or maybe the evil from her parents’ past finally caught up to her. For Chloe, as Ellery learns, is not the first child Teresa Lockhart has lost.
Sending one kidnapped girl to find another could be Chloe’s only hope or an unmitigated disaster that dooms them both.
