For readers of Jodi Picoult, Heather Gudenkauf, and Elizabeth Flock comes a spellbinding tale of a girl gone missing--and the detective who will risk everything to find her.

Detective Sergeant Andrea Lawrence is reluctant to take this emotionally charged case, but she can't help herself. In a small British seaside community, a fourteen-year-old girl has vanished. Sophie Monroe hasn't been seen since she fought--loudly, miserably--with her stepmother and father more than a week ago. But her frantic parents seem to be the only people concerned about Sophie's disappearance. Everyone else just assumes that an angry teenager is acting out by hiding for a while.

Did someone help Sophie run away, or abduct her? Either way, Detective Andee is certain something bad has happened. As Andee investigates, two men jump to the top of the list of suspects--but neither of them can be located. And the deeper Andee delves into Sophie's life, the more she struggles to keep her own darkest fears at bay--because Andee knows all too well what happens when young girls are lost and never found.

I enjoyed it. Detective Andie plays a good part. Very sad in places.
