Paige was gone. They'd taken her little girl.
“Wow. I think I just fell head over heels in love with a fictional character. Tess Winnett is one of the smartest FBI agents and profilers I have come across yet and with analytical skills to rival Sherlock Holmes. Hats off to Leslie Wolfe for easily the best thriller I have read in this genre for many, many years!” – Manie Kilianon ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The girl: taken
After nine-year-old Paige disappears without a trace, FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett is called to investigate one of the boldest kidnappings the bureau has seen. The girl was taken from a theater filled with witnesses, in the middle of a children's play. And no one saw anything.
Starting a frenzied search and following leads that seem to suggest a link to the girl's father, the state district attorney, Tess is stunned to learn of a ransom call that points to an entirely different motive, old as time itself: money.
The first twenty-four hours: critical
Frantic for answers and painfully aware of each passing moment, Tess has a choice to make: trust her instinct and follow the leads that seem to indicate an organized crime connection? Or give in to the demands of the parents and assist with the ransom payment?
The odds of finding Paige alive drop with every passing second, and making the wrong choice would seal her fate. Her blood would be on her hands.
The best-selling author of Dawn Girl is back with another suspenseful, gripping crime thriller. If you're a fan of David Baldacci, Melinda Leigh, and James Patterson, you will enjoy Leslie Wolfe's enthralling police procedural that will keep you reading until the early morning hours.
