Ten months ago, Samantha Hunt set off for work…and was never seen again. Despite the statistics of cold cases, Dylan Scott wants to believe the young woman's alive - and not just because her father, his client, is desperate to find his missing daughter before he dies of cancer.

Sam's boyfriend has a violent past.

Dylan’s inquiries turn up plenty of potential suspects....
Detective Dylan Scott thinks cruising well above the Arctic Circle in November is nothing short of madness.
