Starting with a bang in the first chapter. Was slow moving but began to pick up towards the end. The narrative was stilted and unimaginative. Not one of Nora’s best.

Alex Mercer is no stranger to kidnappings. The emotional scars still run deep from his sister's disappearance years earlier. His daughter Ariana remains safe long after her adoption, and he cherishes the few times a year he gets to see her. The joy is palpable when he takes her on their first one-on-one outing. At least until he pauses to answer a text and Ariana disappears. Wracked with guilt and determined to find answers, Alex teams up with an unlikely ally at the police department.

The storyline was fair but the author showed a lack of imagination. My biggest problem was the narrator. How she works on a professional level is a puzzle to me.
