Bev Irwin a.k.a. Kendra Jamesabout this book: She was only inside for a few minutes. Making their lunch. Where did Clayton go? Single mother Jenny Kingsley searches the backyard, then the front yard. Terror cripples her when she sees the gate in the front yard swinging on it's hinges. The gate that her five-year old son can not open on his own.
What secrets does her neighbor, Steve, harbor? Why is his relationship with the police? Is he only pretending to care for Jenny? He's helping with the search for Clayton, but is that just a ruse to cover up his involvement in the kidnapping?

• "Missing Clayton is a thrilling story about a five year old boy taken from his backyard in the middle of day. Irwin has managed to capture the mentality of a small town in the middle of the farming county so well that every character jumps off the page and becomes alive, even the bloodhound Missy hot on the trail of the missing boy." — Mica Maca

• "Irwin did a brilliant job of showing us Jenny's felling of terror, love, and guilt as the story progresses. The thing I liked best about the book is the ring of truth it has, feeling so authentic it makes me wonder if Ms. Irwin hasn't been through exactly the same thing herself." — Reggie
