The disappearance of a teenage girl in upstate New York
sets off a powder keg of accusations, bigotry, and fear—with
deadly results—in Suzanne Chazin's stunning new mystery
featuring Hispanic police detective Jimmy Vega . . .
On a frigid, January night, a blond, blue-eyed high school
girl walks out of an English class she tutors for
immigrants—and vanishes. Suspicion quickly falls on the men
she was teaching, many of whom are undocumented. As
disturbing evidence trickles in, news of the incident
spreads beyond the scenic town of Lake Holly, New York,
unearthing deep-seated fears and enflaming cultural tensions.
For county police detective Jimmy Vega, the situation is
personal. His girlfriend, Harvard-educated attorney Adele
Figueroa, heads the immigrant center where the teen
volunteer disappeared. If Vega can't find the girl soon and
clear Adele’s clients, the place of refuge may be forced to

missteps, Vega does his best to run interference between
Adele and the local police. But when Vega's boss assigns him
a grunt detail working for the new county supervisor, the
man’s political ambitions clash with Vega’s deepest
convictions. Vega can't imagine a worse turn of events—until
he uncovers even darker forces at play. Someone wants to
destroy far more than Vega's career. And no matter which way
he turns, every step will put him and his family in the killer’s
