Away from her foster brother, Gavin, with whom she has a mysterious bond that has kept them together—and kept her alive.But Judah isn’t free.

  • “What makes this thriller exhilarating is the unexpected strength a clueless but determined mother finds in herself and how much the reader comes to care about her difficult daughter. Each is a missing person well worth finding.”
