Overview

Children’s book illustrator Rachel Stark is living every parent’s nightmare: her nine-year-old son, David, has been snatched off the street in broad daylight with no apparent motive, his red bicycle left lying on the side of the road. Now, already bearing the strain of a troubled marriage, Rachel must channel every ounce of strength into a desperate search for David.

Complicating everything are Rachel’s recently divorced sister, a bombshell who conceals explosive secrets; an icy, by-the-book detective, infuriating in his professional detachment; Rachel’s own lawyer husband, Stephen, who believes he can manage the situation through bullying and logic; and a deceptive “saint” from the Missing Child Foundation, who harbors his own hidden agenda.

Through it all there is David, crying out to be found. But are Rachel’s visions of her terrified child something real or the cruel trick of a mother’s heart consumed with love and fear?

Another ridiculous "miracle mother saves child when stupid cops can't find him" book. Trite and unoriginal.
