Publisher's Summary

A small-town lawyer has been searching for his daughter for eighteen years. Now another young woman is missing, and he’s determined to find them both — no matter the cost.

Buddy Smith built his law practice around tracking down missing children. After all, he knows the agony of being separated from a child. Not long after his daughter’s birth, her mother ran away and Buddy never saw either one again.

Gracie Blaylock has known Buddy her entire life, and now that she is clerk of court for the county, their paths cross frequently. When Gracie hears that a teenager in town has gone missing, she knows Buddy is the one for the case.

The girl’s parents are desperate for answers. Together with Gracie and Mayleah — the new detective in town — Buddy chases all leads, hoping to reach the missing teen before it’s too late. And as he pursues one girl, he uncovers clues that could bring him closer to the girl he thought he lost forever: his own daughter.

Master legal writer Robert Whitlow will keep you guessing in this gripping legal drama while reminding you of the power of God’s restoration.

Not his best

I've always enjoyed his books, but, had trouble with the narrator. It was often difficult to discern which character was talking. I also thought the story was a bit contrived.

Great if you love praying, softball, and the south

The narrator does a good job, and the character development is pretty good, but the story is just too slow for me to care. There’s lots of praying, lots of softball, and lots of boring courtroom scenes. This book isn’t bad, it’s just not my taste.

Excellent book!

Robert did a great job of keeping the story going throughout. The book was both a great legal thriller as well as an inspiring Christian message of hope and the need for prayer. The narration was awesome!

Tackling the Tough Issues

This meaningful story tackles some of today's toughest issues. It is a good story with more than one mystery. As always with Robert Whitlow's books, there is a wide variety of characters. This presented some difficulty for the narrator who does a good job of acting the parts, but does not have a sufficient variety of voices for the characters. In particular, his raspy voice makes it difficult for him to portray characters who are in their mid-30s, such as the main characters. Narrators paint a picture with their voices, and it was difficult not to see Buddy as a 60 some-year-old. This did not prevent me from enjoying the book, though.
