Publisher's Summary

Former homicide cop turned private investigator Cass Raines gets the job done in this Chicago-set novel from award-winning author Tracy Clark.

Chicago in the dead of winter can be brutal, especially when you're scouring the frigid streets for a missing girl. Fifteen-year-old Ramona Titus has run away from her foster home. Her biological mother, Leesa Evans, is a recovering addict who admits she failed Ramona often in the past. But now she's clean. And she's determined to make up for her mistakes - if Cass can only help her find her daughter.

Cass visits Ramona's foster mother, Deloris Poole, who is also desperate to bring the girl home. Ramona came to Deloris six months ago, angry and distrustful, but was slowly opening up. The police are on the search, but Cass has sources closer to the streets, and a network of savvy allies. Yet it seems Ramona doesn't want to be found. And Cass soon begins to understand why. 

Ramona is holding secrets dark enough to kill for, and anyone who helps her may be fair game. And if Ramona can't run fast enough and hide well enough to keep the truth safe, she and Cass may both be out of time.

Like an SVU episode with bad ending

This book is a lot like listening to an episode of Law and Order SVU. The dialogue and storyline are entertaining but nothing out of the ordinary. What is really irritating about this book is that, beside the main story and plot, there is a second story ongoing. However, when you get the book’s end you only discover the ending of the first story. Apparently, if you want to find out how the other story ends you have to buy the next book in a series. I won’t.

I love a good heroine

The narrator's voice fits Cassandra Reigns so well... can't wait until the next installment.

Another Winner

I have found a new author, Tracy Clark. This is the second book of her's that I have read. Once I start listening, I do not want to stop. I like the misfit family Clark has created for the main character. No one is perfect in this unconventional family which gives one a sense of reality. The plot is interesting and the characters rememberable. As before, I wish the narrator would differentiate the characters voices. It can be confusing as to who's talking.
I will start a third book today.
