Twenty years ago, Madeline Barker's father disappeared. Despite what everyone else thinks, Madeline is convinced her stepfamily had nothing to do with it. But the recent discovery of his car finally proves he didn't just drive away.
Worse, the police find something in the trunk that says there's more to this case than murder. With no other recourse, Madeline decides to hire a private investigator–even if the cops and her family don't like it. But when P.I. Hunter Solozano begins to uncover some shocking evidence, someone in Stillwater is determined to put a stop to her. Permanently.
