For five years‚ Karin Preston kept her daughter a secret. Not even the father knew she existed. Then‚ for one night‚ Karin leaves her child with a sitter.
The next morning‚ no one answers the door. Desperate‚ Karin breaks in. The house is empty and dusty. Detective Casey Jansen says the house has been vacant for years. He sees no evidence of a child‚ only a hysterical young woman possibly imagining one. But Karin knows once the police discover who she really is‚ she will be held for endless questioning and her child will be lost forever. Just as the kidnappers planned.
To save her child‚ Karin must elude the persistent Detective Jansen and untangle the truth behind a terrible crime.
