The 2nd installment of Shojai's dark, female-driven domestic thriller series featuring pet-centric plots. HIDE AND SEEK continues the story begun in LOST AND FOUND.
A mysterious contagion will shatter countless lives unless a service dog and his trainer find a missing cat . . . in 24 hours.
A STALKER hides in plain sight.
A VICTIM faces her worst fear.
AND A DOG seeks the missing--and finds hope.
Eight years ago, animal behaviorist September Day escaped a sadistic captor who left her ashamed, terrified, and struggling with PTSD. She trusts no one--except her Maine Coon cat Macy and service dog Shadow.
Shadow also struggles with trust. A German Shepherd autism service dog who rescued his child partner only to lose his-boy forever, Shadow's crippling fear of abandonment shakes his faith in humans.
September must solve an epidemic of Alzheimer's-like symptoms, evade a relentless sadist from her past, and protect her chosen family from the killer. September has only 24 hours to uncover the truth about Macy's mysterious illness or pay the deadly consequences.
When September learns to trust again, and a good-dog takes a chance on love, together they find hope in the midst of despair--and discover what family really means.
