New York Times–bestselling author Stephen White offers readers fascinating glimpses into the human psyche, blended with real-world details and heart-stopping suspense. In Missing Persons, the peril begins with a simple phone call. Alan Gregory and Diane Estevez call fellow mental health professional Hannah Grant, and Hannah doesn't call them back. That might not sound very alarming. Lots of people don't answer phone messages promptly, especially when they're at work. But for an obsessive-compulsive like Hannah, not responding to a phone call is beyond unlikely -- it's downright impossible! Discovering Hannah's dead body on the floor of a colleague's office is almost a relief. Death is an excuse that could not be denied. The only remaining question seems to be whether this tragic event was a misadventure…or murder.
With Hannah's death still a mystery, the city of Boulder, Colorado, reels under another blow. The night before Christmas a girl disappears, leaving behind a trail of blood and even more unanswered questions. The one that haunts everyone involved in this investigation is the possible link to the still-unsolved disappearance of another girl eight years before -- a six-year-old who would now be the same age as the young teen who vanished on Christmas Eve. To Diane and Alan's surprise, it seems that Hannah's client records -- as well as Alan's -- may hold some of the answers; but issues of confidentiality limit access to facts that could prove vital, as the ranks of Missing Persons swell.
