This novel starts out with a line that could be the start of a great mystery or thriller, but this is not that kind of story. It's a slow-moving, in depth character study of human nature and the complexities of relationship dynamics. It shows how people are apt to rationalize and justify crossing a moral line to suit their purposes.
Naomi Cottle has a talent for finding missing children with a sixth sense born of a past she cannot remember. It's been three years since the disappearance of Madison Culver, and the odds are not in her favor. Her parents' last hope remains with Naomi, as she strategically works her way through the mountainous forest of Washington state to bring Madison home, dead or alive.
