Six months after an unspeakable crime, Michigan police find a missing five-year-old wandering across the frozen surface of Lake Superior. Authorities discover her abductor brutally murdered in a wilderness cabin, but the child has no memory of her captivity or rescue.
Thirty years later, Gabriella vanishes again after making a frantic call to 911. A gruesome crime scene shocks authorities and evidence of homicide leads to the arrest of her husband. To protect him from prison, Toronto PI Samantha McNamara and former police Inspector Reece Hash must unravel Gabriella's haunted past. And the key lies in the ominous truth behind a thirty-year-old abduction.
But the web of deception that Sam has woven around her own past begins to disintegrate when their investigation reveals clandestine ties her father had to Gabriella's childhood. As Reece’s suspicions mount, Sam struggles to guard her family’s secrets and untangle the mystery that is Gabriella. The twists keep readers turning the pages.
