An Arizona teenager’s disappearance has an ex-cop remembering her own tragic past—and questioning her own sanity . . .
Winner of the New Mexico-Arizona Book Award
When a teenage girl goes missing in Arizona, retired NYPD officer Jamie Butler is frantic to find her. Haunted by the brutal murder of her own daughter, Jamie is convinced that this girl has been abducted in the same way.
There are inexplicable similarities to her own daughter’s abduction. Connections that seem impossible—because her daughter’s killer is long dead.
But as her search for the missing teen intensifies, new evidence comes to light.
Evidence that implicates Jamie herself . . .

About the Author

Shannon Baker lives on the edge of the desert in Tucson with her crazy Weimaraner and her favorite human. Baker spent 20 years in the Nebraska Sandhills, where cattle outnumber people by more than 50:1. She lived in Flagstaff for several years and worked for the Grand Canyon Trust, a hotbed of environmentalists who, usually, don't resort to murder. She is the proud recipient of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers 2014 and 2017-18 Writer of the Year Award.

A lover of the great outdoors, she can be found backpacking, traipsing to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, skiing mountains and plains, kayaking lakes, river running, hiking, cycling, and scuba diving whenever she gets a chance. Arizona sunsets notwithstanding, Baker is, and always will be a Nebraska Husker. Go Big Red.
