After all, the chances of finding a woman who disappeared without a trace--and without a word--five years earlier are slim. But its the missing womans daughter who touches her most deeply--a troubled young girl whose mothers disappearance has rendered her mute. The child is also suspected of the murder of her doctor, a rich neurologist who was brutally stabbed one night while he was alone in his office. Rachel knows the disturbed girl cant be a murderer, but her investigation reveals that against all odds, it could be someone from her past. And against a backdrop of betrayal, neglect, and a city at times as lonely and frightening as a childs worst nightmares, Rachels involvement in the case uncovers issues more complex, and more heartbreaking, than shes ever seen--problems that someone was willing to die, or even kill, for.
