One girl disappeared. After fifteen years, her cold lifeless body was found on the damp forest floor. Not an inch of her was unmarked by the horrors she endured. Alone, malnourished, abused in horrific ways; this was how she died.
One girl was found walking the streets, covered in dirt and scars. She had no memory of who she was, where she came from, or what happened to her. Even though the marks on her body attested to years of heinous abuse, her strength shone through at every turn.
Revenge and justice were sworn.
Years of searching brought up nothing but dead ends. Detective Niko James was too late to save his childhood friend, but he vows not to let down another.
The clock is ticking and the trail is pitch dark.

This was an in-depth book about abduction and child abuse to the 10th power, and it scared the crap out of me what sickness is out there.
After reading this sad story, it was amazing to see the determination of a boy who grew into a man who entered a profession because of what happened to his best friend. Many years of searching, he finally finds answers.
Warning: if you can’t handle rape, child abduction, and psycho tendencies…this book may be too graphic for you.
Holy surprise ending, Batman!
When I say I did NOT know what was coming… This insanely captivating thrill ride of a book was equal parts horrifying, heartbroken, and powerful. The way Doe’s strength and Niko’s anguish shine through each page was amazing. While this is a very dark book with definite trigger warnings, I thought is was beautifully written and showcased perseverance above everything else. I had so many theories running through my head while reading this, and none of them could have prepared me for the ending. Masterful storytelling! **CHECK TRIGGER WARNINGS - graphic descriptions of violence and sexual assault** *I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
