Fiction | Mystery Private Eye | Mystery Woman Sleuth
A cold-blooded killer is on the loose in California's capital--and only a kidnapped child could hold the key to derailing his diabolical plan.
When Emma Lawson and her best friend, Kate, decide to leave their high-stress jobs in the rough-and-tumble world of Sacramento politics, they look forward to launching their new business: the Rainbow Alley Preschool. But their plans are shattered when their most high-profile enrollee--Vivian Lange, the California governor's 3-year-old daughter--is kidnapped during a private tour at the school, along with Kate's 15-year-old son, Luke. Kate is shot during the melee and is left clinging to life.
Locked away in a remote room with Vivian, Luke tries desperately to find a way to contact Emma and reveal their whereabouts. But without a single lead, Emma has to rely on the analytical skills she honed in countless political battles to trace the missing children. As she draws closer to the kidnapper's lair, Emma begins to piece together clues that point to a cache of sordid secrets and a decade-old cold-case murder with motives reaching into the city's dark underbelly.
Over a harrowing forty-eight hours, trapped in a web that grows more tangled by the minute, Emma races against the clock to stop a killer whose master plan only begins with murder.
