   Hell hath no fury like a desperate mother searching for her missing child.                                

Waking up in a hospital with no memory of the past five days can be terrifying. Realizing your sixteen-year-old daughter is nowhere to be found, is horrifying. As the list of missing young girls mounts, Rose must put aside the pain and betrayal of the only man she'd ever loved and put it in a man she'd just met.


The devastating betrayal by the only man she’d ever loved has taken its toll on Rose Bradigan. For the last two years, she has slowly rebuilt her shattered life amid accusations of duplicity and disloyalty by her own child. The constant skirmishes between Rose and her precocious sixteen-year-old daughter, Lily, have nearly severed their mother-daughter bond. With Lily’s father serving a life sentence in prison, Rose is at a loss as to what to do with the angry, hurting teen. Finding that Lily has slipped out of her bedroom window in the middle of the night only to be escorted home by two police officers, is the straw that nearly breaks Rose. Hoping to help them both heal and regain some semblance of normalcy, Rose and Lily set out on an impromptu road trip to Florida. It seems to be working, too… Until Rose awakens in a hospital bed in a small town in South Carolina with no memory of the past five days and Lily is missing. With the aid of Lucas Manning, sheriff of Cherokee County, they race to find the key that will unlock the terrifying memories hidden in Rose’s traumatized subconscious. With a mounting list of missing young women and someone who is willing to kill them to hide the truth, Rose and Lucas must find Lily before she becomes the next victim.
