Politics is a dirty business—but death is dirty, too.
When LAPD Detective Maddie Divine is called to a private meeting with the mayor and the governor, her instincts kick into high alert. Young women are disappearing, but why all the political secrecy? And why are the kidnappers targeting girls close to the governor? Maddie throws herself into finding the answers—a good distraction from she and her husband working on their crumbling marriage. But things are about to get worse—in more ways than one.
When one girl is found dead and no one claims the grisly deed, the clock continues to tick, and Maddie is running out of time. If her suspicions are right, death isn’t the only thing the kidnapped girls have to fear—clues point to the involvement of a notorious sex-trafficker. As the clues are revealed, Maddie and her partner set a trap. But with covert forces working against them, Maddie is ambushed, targeted before she uncovers the truth. Will anyone find her before it’s too late? Or will Maddie become the next victim?
