Summary
Young Jimmy Higgins is snatched from an airport security checkpoint while his guardian watches helplessly from the glass inspection box. But this is no ordinary abduction, as Jimmy is no ordinary child. His mother was Scarlett, a reality TV star who, dying of cancer and alienated from her unreliable family, entrusted the boy to the person she believed best able to give him a happy, stable life: her ghost writer, Stephanie Harker. Assisting the FBI in their attempt to recover the missing boy, Stephanie reaches into the past to uncover the motive for the abduction. Has Jimmy been taken by his own relatives? Is Stephanie's obsessive ex-lover trying to teach her a lesson? Has one of Scarlett's stalkers come back to haunt them all?
Summary
A child is brazenly abducted in the middle of a busy airport. But this is no ordinary kidnapping, because this is no ordinary child. His mother was Scarlett, a reality TV star who died tragically young from cancer. She didn't trust her disastrous family and left the care of her child to her ghost writer, Stephanie Harker. What Scarlett didn't know is that Stephanie's ex is a bitter, jealous man who will stop at nothing to destroy her life. Even if that means snatching an already traumatized child.
