Publisher's Summary

Catherine excels at helping desperate people disappear. But now she must use her unique skill set to find a missing woman in this electrifying novel from the author of The Burial Society.

Eva Lombard is being followed. Or so she suspects....

Eva and her husband, Peter, are in Hong Kong on a romantic getaway from London when Peter wakes up in their hotel room to an empty bed, his wife gone without a trace. His worst fears are confirmed: Eva wasn’t imagining things. Suddenly, he finds himself the number-one suspect in his wife’s disappearance, trapped in a foreign country with no one to turn to. He calls his boss, Forrest "Holly" Holcomb, who enlists the help of Catherine, his ex-flame and the enigmatic operator behind the darknet witness-protection program known as the Burial Society.

As a favor to Holly, Catherine sends her team of highly trained Society members on a dangerous chase through Hong Kong to find Eva - while Catherine takes care of pressing business at home. Not only is she tasked with a mission in Mexico City, protecting a family that knows too much from a vengeful pharmaceutical company, but an FBI agent tracking down the missing wife and child of a charismatic businessman is about to come dangerously close to exposing the Society’s secrets.

In these intertwining story lines that converge in unexpected ways, not everyone is who they appear to be - and not everyone who is lost wants to be found.

Critic Reviews

"There’s a definite cinematic vibe to Sadowsky’s novel, especially as the characters rush around Hong Kong in Jason Bourne-type chase scenes. Catherine and her mysterious network are impressively connected and intriguingly motivated, and the woman herself is a fascinating study of power, empathy, and efficiency.... Surrender to the action and intrigue...and enjoy this whirlwind adventure in Hong Kong." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Entertaining." (Publishers Weekly)

"A sly, wry look at privilege and the price it can exact...a globe-trotting, jet-setting quest to avenge some of society’s most pressing ills...Nina Sadowsky thrills again with her filmic vision of a troupe of unlikely superheroes." (Jenny Milchman, USA Today best-selling author of Cover of Snow and Wicked River)
