About this BookThe two-year-old child of a CIA agent was stolen under the cover of darkenss as a brutal act of revenge. Now eight years later, this is the torment that Catherine Ling awakens to every day. Her friends, family, and colleagues tell her to let it go, to move on, to accept that her son is never coming back. But as a mother, she can't. Catherine needs to find a person as driven and obsessed as she is to help her, and only one person fits the bill: Eve Duncan. She knows that Eve can relate, as Eve lives the same nightmare due to not having any closure after the disappearance of her daughter Bonnie. Eve's talents as a forensic sculptor must now be taken to another level, using age progression as a way to unite Catherine with her child. As Eve is drawn into Catherine's horror, she must face down looming demons of her own.
Bonnie's killer is still out there somewhere, while a new killer is taunting Eve and Catherine at every turn. Is Catherine's son still alive, or is Catherine's son dead? These two women will have to endure the worst fear any mother-or parent-can imagine in Iris Johansen's latest thrill ride, which is a gut-wrenching journey into the darkest corners of the human soul.
