Enid Blackwell feels responsible for her friend’s murder more than a year ago. Struggling with emotional turmoil and guilt, Enid is determined to make a safe, even if boring, life for herself by avoiding crime reporting and writing a weekly newspaper column. Assigned to do an article about a local soup kitchen, she discovers during an interview that the cook’s daughter simply vanished several months ago. The police investigated but have no further leads to follow, and the case is growing cold. Desperate and with nowhere else to turn, the father pleads with Enid, “Please help me find my daughter.”
The Last Sale is the second book in the Enid Blackwell series.
