Color explodes in the night sky, every boom and spray of lights getting louder cheers from the happy crowd. But two little girls are hiding in fear. “I want my mommy,” Abby whispers. A tear falls down her cheek as she clutches her sister’s hand and darkness finally falls…
When six-year-old Abby and nine-year-old Thea are snatched from a crowd at a fireworks display, Detective Nikki Hunt is determined to return the sweet sisters, with golden curls and laughing smiles, to their desperate mother Britney . The last person to see them alive witnessed the girls being led towards the docks by someone they seemed to know.
As Nikki begins her interviews, she’s shocked to learn that Britney has a dark secret . Ten years ago she ran away from Thea’s biological father, a man Britney claims was controlling and dangerous. Certain he must have taken the girls, Nikki urges the state troopers in nearby Thief River Falls to search the isolated ranch where he lives. But he is devastated to hear the girls are missing, and had no idea that Thea was even his daughter…
Then a witness comes forward claiming they saw a young boy clutching Thea’s little pink backpack at the fireworks. Nikki knows he’s the key to finding the girls alive, but she has no idea that someone on her team will do anything to keep his identity a secret. Unable to trust those closest to her, can Nikki unravel the truth and save Thea and Abby before their innocent lives are lost?

Nikki is an excellent FBI agent. She somehow manages to balance being a mum and an agent which is no easy job!
In this book Nikki and the team are investigating the case of two very young missing girls. Missing children always pulls right at the heart strings and all you want is for them to be home safely.
There were so many secrets going on in this book. From the parents to Nikki’s partner it seemed everyone had something to hide. The story was intense and you constantly felt like time was running out. I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the very end.
This was an excellent addition to the series. If you are looking for a police procedural that will keep you engaged and turning page after page then this is for you.
