Author Marla Madisonabout this book: Readers who enjoy a compelling suspense story with a compelling female protagonist, will enjoy this book. Detective Kendall Halsrud is a woman easily identified with. As she strives to find a baby missing after a deadly home invasion, she struggles with her the past when it parallels with the missing child.

As the reader first meets Kendall, she's just been to the crime scene. Her car is stuffed with all her worldly goods after Kendall is tossed out by a disgruntled roommate.

Kendall takes an apartment across the hall from a young girl with albinism who does card readings to earn extra money. Brynn, also a hacker, helps Kendall in her search for the missing child.

Kendall is pursued by a PI hired by the family to find the baby; he wants her to join forces. A former cop, he is the one Kendall believes responsible in a drug bust that led to her getting shot. In her desperation, Kendall must overcome her dislike of Nash in order to find the child. Together, they put their lives at risk to find the baby while she's still alive.

From a five-star review: "While Detective Kendall Halsrud is unsure of herself personally, professionally she's focused, determined and willing to take chances to find baby Philly, the sole survivor of a deadly home invasion ... or IS she a survivor? During the course of the investigation, the reader meets an interesting cast of characters who come together to make up an intriguing story of decency vs. depravity."
