Who knew that being a

Barbara Holloway to face her biggest
challenge ever: being named prime
suspect in a high-profile kidnapping?

The peace and quiet of Barbara's retreat on
the Oregon coast is shattered when a terrified
young boy calls to her as she walks along a
deserted beach. Frantically he leads her to a
cabin deep in the woods where his mother
lies senseless and batteredclearly left for
dead. Barbara runs for help, but by the time
she returns with the police and medics both
mother and son are gone.

The puzzle only deepens when, back in the
city, Barbara learns that the boy she met is the
grandson of a wealthy and prominent family
and that they have accused her of aiding and
abetting his disappearance.

With the help of her father, Frank, Barbara
delves into the mystery of the missing child,
only to realize that the kidnapping is a ruse for
a more sinister plana plan that pits the
meaning of family against cold hard cash.

But the more she learns, the more questions
she has, and troubling obstacles continue to
thwart her every movefrom the justice system
that employs her, to the false identities of those
around her. Yet none of these things compares
to the shocking murder scene that awaits her.
