What would a mother do to find her kidnapped son?
Sandi Rose is used to being in control. When her thirteen year old son Neal is kidnapped, she uses her skills as an investigative reporter to try to find him…until police ban her from the case after she’s caught breaking into a suspect’s home. A week later Neal escapes. And the kidnappers vanish. Seven months pass. It should be over now, but it isn’t. Neal is still tormented by nightmares and the police are no closer to finding the people who held and tortured him. When an innocent misunderstanding makes Sandi think her son has been kidnapped again, she realizes they can’t continue on like this. Unless they want to spend the rest of their lives in fear, the kidnappers have to be caught. Since the police no longer seem to care, she is forced to solve the case herself. But someone will do anything to keep her from discovering the truth behind the kidnapping, even commit murder. Now, falsely accused of the suspicious death of two co-workers and unable to prove her innocence. Sandi is caught up in a situation she can no longer control. What she eventually uncovers will shatter everything she’s ever believed about her family and friends and will force Neal to make a decision that may well ruin both their lives.
