Reverend Rob Vander Laan prowls an unlikely parish-the dark streets and alleys of 1970 Grand Rapids, Michigan. With Lydia, his seventy-one-year-old night ministry partner, he hangs out with his street people and makes the rounds of the bars. When a go-go dancer at Gus's Getaway vanishes without her life-saving medications, the ministry duo is compelled to try to find her, armed with their reckless nosiness. When a second dancer disappears and Rob is apparently the last to see her, he becomes a prime suspect. Now Rob and Lydia are burdened with the added weight of clearing Rob's name and protecting the reputation of the Street Ministry. And if they are to stand a chance of resolving the Getaway trouble, Rob will have to confront his deepest fear and a shameful secret.

About the Author
Terry Hager grew up in Hudsonville, Michigan, a largely Dutch/Calvinist community near Grand Rapids. After graduating from Calvin seminary, he worked as an ordained minister at the Grand Rapids Youth Ministry from 1968-1973. His ministry was among gangs, flower children and others who were drawn to the magnet of downtown. His work took him into the streets and the bars as well as into the churches supporting his ministry. He worked the rest of his ministry career as a pastoral counselor at an ecumenical counseling center in Grand Rapids. In 1997 he retired with his wife, Ruth, to become a fulltime RVer, to travel and to write to his heart's content. He has published numerous magazine articles and two mysteries.
