Eighteen months after he got out of prison, he found out he had a daughter. She'd been kidnapped and murdered just a year before he was paroled.
Danny is staying out of trouble, trying to run a business, and learning to fit back into a world that left him behind twelve years ago.
He's also trying to piece together the life of a child he never knew.
As he digs deeper into the investigation, questions start popping up. Her body was the wrong height. Her hair color was wrong. But the DNA matched, didn't it? DNA is never wrong. Is it?
If she's still alive, saving her means violating his parole and lying to people he's come to care about. How far will an ex-con go to rescue a daughter he never knew who isn’t even supposed to be alive?
Bob Mueller has been a cop, soldier, pizza guy, computer programmer, and even a funeral escort. But he still doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up, so for now he tells stories.
Born in north Texas and raised in southeastern Ohio, Bob calls Oklahoma home these days. He's a member of International Thriller Writers, Tulsa NightWriters, and Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, a father of eight, and a pastor’s husband. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading (thrillers, historical fiction and non-fiction, and police procedurals), genealogy, and motorcycling.

Jessie says they mustn't tell. She says there's nothing to worry about. But when she takes a job looking after the woman's baby daughter, Addie starts to realise that her big sister doesn't always tell her the whole story. And that the secrets they're keeping may start costing lives . . .
