    All it took was one small item on the regional news for Kimberly Guyver and Rachel Golinski to know that their old life was catching up with them. They wondered how they’d been naïve enough to think it wouldn’t. They hoped they still had a chance to leave it behind - just one more time - but within hours, Rachel's home is burning and Kimberly’s young son, Riley, is missing. DC Goodhew begins to sift through their lives, and starts to uncover an unsettling picture of deceit, murder, and accelerating danger.
