Phelan Tierney helps people who hope to start their lives over. When Jacquelina Garza, a young woman he’s taken under his wing, disappears, the former lawyer devotes himself to finding her—despite her secretive and puzzlingly unhelpful family.
Jacqi has been to hell and back. Abducted by a child predator when she was eight years old, she still, years later, bears the scars of the incident and its very public aftermath. Her life takes an even steeper downward spiral when she witnesses the murder of a man it seems everyone wanted dead. But no one, not even the police, wants to hear her version of what actually happened.
Can these two wayward souls find redemption amid the convenient lies and difficult truths that have followed them for so long?

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review Victor Cope kidnapped two little girls. Mariana was never found and Jacqi was able to escape. She had eaten very little and had been naked and shackled. I read about half of this book, but it just dragged on and didn't keep my interest.
