Delilah Merewether, a beautiful, talented and successful woman, worked that day as a company representative at the Orange County Convention Center in California. At five in the afternoon she passed through the door from the convention center to the parking facility and diapered. Her black BMW remained in space 37 on the upper floor of the parking building. Nothing had been touched in the locked car. Two months later private investigator, Dan Ryan stood where the car had been and concluded that the woman had vanished between the convention center door and where he was standing, a five minute walk. Dan Ryan was a licensed private investigator in New York and had a reputation for finding people or things that other people couldn't. He had learned his trade as the main agent for the US Air Force tracking down drug kingpins who trafficked on US service men in Germany. In New York he was known for being doggedly determined, disciplined and unafraid of violence. As a man he was straight out honest. From the onset Ryan didn't like this case. He didn't like or trust her parents when they wanted him to find their daughter and he didn't want to go to California. In the end he took the case, not because of them, but because he thought Delilah deserved to be found and respectably buried or let to live her life in piece. He wasn't happy when his long time girlfriend decided to piggyback on his trip to California. In his mind he worked alone and didn't need a partner. Once started, they worked the case in his methodical and determined way, chasing every clue to where it led and after uncovering the horrifying truth things got nasty. That's when Ryan learned that Sally was a tough and clever partner.
