As a teenager, Cora Gannon was gang raped. Unable to handle the situation, she turned to drugs and eventually ran away from home. She sank lower into drugs and criminal activity. When she became pregnant, she set about changing her name and her life. Now, as Cora Martin, she works as an accountant for a courier firm with a boss involved with Mexican drug cartels. One night, two men posing as cops invade Cora's home, kidnap her daughter and demand she tell her boss to return stolen money. Helpless, she turns to the only person she thinks can help-her estranged younger brother, a reporter for a world wide news service. Using contacts and following leads, Jack Gannon travels to Mexico, Texas, California, and Nevada in search of any information that will lead him to his niece. However, he suspects something in Cora's past has come back to haunt her.
Mofina juggles multiple characters and locations in this book: the frustrated FBI agent, the repentant assassin, and Jack's boss, who only wants an exclusive. Although the focus generally stays on Jack's search, you get glimpses of many people on the sidelines playing minor roles. With relatively short chapters, the story spans several states and three countries, keeping you guessing where it's off to next. There is a lot of action in only a few days so you won't be desperate for this to stay moving.
