A rising star in the CIA, Erin Baker is driven by a
tragedy from her past. When she was a child, her eight-
year-old sister, Claire, was kidnapped. Though Claire was
miraculously found, she was changed forever. As was Erin,
who now just might get what she's always wanted most: the
chance to make a difference in someone's life. But she
must be willing to risk everything she holds dear.
A covert officer overseas, Erin now works stateside in the
world's most sophisticated intelligence-gathering
organization. But her life takes an unexpected turn when
she spots an ice cream vendor performing magic tricks for
kids. She has seen this man beforethe day her sister
disappeared. Obtaining access to records few are allowed
to see, Erin pries open her sister's cold kidnapping case.
With her arsenal of data banks and espionage techniques,
Erin hopes to finally bring the criminal to justice.
When a boy disappears near her home, Erin is certain
there is a link between the two cases. She meets Alec
Donovan, an FBI agent on the hunt to find the missing
child, whose record for locating missing children is
unquestioned. Suddenly Alec and Erin find themselves on a
desperate pursuitfrom the streets of America's most
peaceful neighborhoods to a horrifying underworld where
children are stolen and trafficked. And as they get closer
to the truth, they make their own lives, and the lives of
everyone they love, into perfect targets for a killer.
