Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her for the short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again…


Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results. 



The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive...

An easy read

A fairly standard police procedural about a kidnapped woman and the police’s attempts to locate her. The detective Gina Harte is likable enough and the story has a few interesting facets, as Gina battles her own past demons of domestic abuse.
It was fairly predictable though and a bit melodramatic in places. I wouldn’t read any more in the series.

Good Mystery

The book was interesting and kept me intrigued. There was good character development and the pacing worked well I did not think this novel had many thriller aspects and I felt that the ending\reveal was a let down. However, still a good read.
