Befriended by Emil’s niece and nephew after her rescue and escape from Howard’s minions, Charlie was unprepared for the concern and worry, or the crushing, overwhelming guilt when she learned that Emli’s sister, Cathy was suddenly kidnapped; taken instead of herself because Cathy was the other Emli look-a-like...
