FBI Special Agent Clare Marshall was separated from her sister Beth in childhood when their mother tried to kill them. Now, Clare learns that Beth lives in the small town of Farley, South Carolina but when she goes there to reunite with Beth, Clare discovers her sister is missing and that someone in the town is responsible for her disappearance.
Clare receives an offer to help with the search from fellow FBI Special Agent Jake Sutton. The offer is too good to refuse, though that is exactly what Clare wants to do. Jake is Clare's former lover, a man she cannot forget and who has an agenda of his own. While Clare tracks her sister, someone is tracking Clare, and finding her sister may cost Clare her life.

I found the character of Claire to be an insular, brittle character. While I get the angst about her past...she blames Jake for walking away - but in my opinion he had good reason. She continues to pout about him walking away - while freely admitting she can only give so much of herself and waaaahhh...why isn't that enough? Chicken....Then there's the plot. I found the set up of how Clare winds up in this little out of the way town in South Carolina where her former lover Jake just happens to live an is a "resident" FBI agent highly implausible. So Clare is looking for her sister, she is supposed to be an FBI agent, but she pulls the really dumb and very trite mistake of going into dangerous situations with no back-up. When the main characters start down that road - I find it very hard to keep buying into the plot. Not to mention when you head into the climax and she has the tactical advantage at one point and doesn't follow thru and finish the job....and turns her freaking back on the bad guy before being sure he is down! Yikes that is soooooo dumb.
Worst southern accents ever! I am a southerner....we don't talk that way. Really. And why do southerners from small towns always get portrayed as redneck and not quite bright! Insulting!
A bit of anger and disappointment in the overall book.
