Back of the BookA former big-city cop haunted by past tragedy, Kate Williams accepts the job of police chief for the rural Canadian town of Mendenhall. But instead of the low-key troubles typical of a smaller force, she finds a station divided by rivalries—and very few supporters. The pressure only increases when a crazy old man shows up with a child's red running shoe, insisting he witnessed a kidnapping.
Is six-year-old Josh Hollister in jeopardy—or just staying with his grandmother, as his mother calmly insists? Rallying her factional force into a collective unit to investigate proves less difficult once they determine there is no grandmother. But there is a missing father who desperately wants to protect his son, and a mother with dangerous associates. Finding Josh quickly becomes a race against time…to stop a tragedy Kate vowed would never happen on her watch again.
