On the eve of a high-profile murder trial, a 7-year-old girl disappears — the daughter of the San Francisco cop who is the star witness. Was Amy kidnapped to derail the trial, or has one of her feuding parents hidden her away?
Artist and private investigator Jess Randolph joins the frantic search for the girl she thinks of as a sister. When a would-be rescuer dies violently, fears rise that Amy is in the hands of a killer. Jess must risk her life and confront her darkest fears as she races time to find the child before it’s too late. The hunt takes her from San Francisco to the snowbound Sierra, and deep into the hearts of two shattered families.
