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
EDITOR: A writer since age six and a professional one since nineteen, my initial editing experience came in the swarms of prose I pumped out into the world, only occasionally into the world of actual magazines, anthologies or e-zines. Soon, as I began selling more regularly, and as publishers took note of my longer works, I began freelance editing. I've edited screenplays, memoirs, novels, children's books and, would you believe it, epic narrative poetry. One of the novels I edited, "Under the Tamarind Tree," was shortlisted among nine others for the 2014 Dundee International Book Prize. A charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), I am also the managing editor of the organization's official publication, Literary Landscapes, which features stories, excerpts, articles and poetry (see issues here). In addition, I belong to the editing collective Write For Success, for which I perform manuscript critiques and consultation. As an author, I have published nine novels and almost fifteen short stories.
