Description

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.  

Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's novels have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Reviews for Ben Rehder's novels:

—Chicago Tribune

“Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.”

“Wickedly funny.” 
—Dallas Morning News

“The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.”

“Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.”

    Reminiscent of the Spenser novels, adeptly kept my interest from the first few pages. Nice twist at the end.

    The first book I've read by Ben Rehder, but it won't be the last. Very witty repartee, and good character development.
