Is she missing, or was she ever there?
As a newspaper reporter, Lexie Lincoln knows a good story when she sees one, and when a source doesn't show up for an interview and doesn't answer her phone, Lexie feels certain there's something wrong. This woman is a visitor to town, on her own and vulnerable, and Lexie may be the only person to realize she's gone missing.
The weird thing is that nobody else remembers seeing this woman, even though Lexie met her during a busy night in her friend Margarita's restaurant. That makes it hard for her to convince anyone that there's a problem. After all, Lexie can see ghosts most other people don't. The woman Lexie talked to might not even have been alive.
Sure of her instincts, Lexie sets out to learn more about the woman and what might have happened to her. The plot thickens when the woman's car is found abandoned. Now Lexie knows she didn't imagine the visitor, but where is she, and what happened to her?
As the clues line up, Lexie starts to worry that they're just a bit too neat, too much like a good story. Now that the police are seriously investigating the woman's disappearance, Lexie's credibility may be in danger if she got the story all wrong in the first place. She has to find the truth before the police do—and before her next issue goes to press—if she doesn't want to be the editor who cried wolf.
