Isaac Childs has the perfect life—until that life comes crashing down when his wife Ramie vanishes.
- WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award - Best Contemporary Fiction
"Baer writes with guts and sensitivity -- the kind of suspense that turns a reader into a fan. I can't wait for his next thrilling read." ~ Gregg Olsen, New York Times #1 Bestselling Author
Isaac learns that his wife's disappearance is the ninth in a string of similar cases. In the wake of this news, he struggles to cope, to be a good father to his daughter and college-bound son, and to reclaim something of an ordinary life even as he conceals his troubled past.
After the FBI makes an arrest, and his wife is presumed dead, Isaac begins to move on. Yet will his secrets catch up with him? Has he conquered his vices for good? And what of the FBI's theory that the case isn't completely resolved, after all?
"Each chapter brought a surprise, and the suspense never let up until the very last page. I wanted to know more." ~ Jessica Peters, Escape 2 Fiction
"Absolutely heartbreaking. This book has everything. Suspenseful, crime, heartbreak, laughter, romance, and just full of messed up stuff. Follow Isaac as his world crumbles...." ~ OKbook Hoarder

About the Author
I’m a professional thrifter, the father of four children, and an avid runner. I was born and raised in Georgia, and spent time in Oklahoma, California, Connecticut, and then Oregon, as an adult. I’m a graduate of Oregon State University and now reside in North Georgia, raising my family, near family.
My first book, The Earth Bleeds Red, was released in 2013. I took a few years off from writing to start my own business, and my second book, The Lights Will Never Fade, came out in Jan 2018. My new contemporary suspense/thriller series, An American Family, is coming in the fall of 2018 from Evolved Publishing.
I’m a bit of a free spirit who enjoys working from home, traveling around, looking for treasures to share, and creating worlds that otherwise would not exist. Thrifting and writing are my two passions, and I’m fortunate to be able to do both.
