A day after a violent night encounter on a Florida beach, eighteen-year-old Jenny Spencer is missing. She left her cell phone, and her Aunt Susan knows Jenny would never forget it. The police are unconcerned as just a few days earlier, Jenny had run away from home. In no mood for bureaucracy, Susan calls in a favor that shows up in the form of Jake Travis, a wisecracking ex-special forces PI. Susan and Jake had an instant attraction over a recent dinner but Jake walked away. He is committed to Kathleen.
Jake's investigation to find Jenny becomes mysteriously entwined with Kathleen's past. Jake quickly finds himself fighting a two-front battle-to find Jenny Spencer and, equally importantly, to protect Kathleen from her past.
Robert Lane's second Jake Travis novel delivers a tour de force of suspense, intrigue, and humor, deftly wrapped in Lane's trademark literary overtones.
