by Mary Lou Healy
Libby Wakefield is fortune’s darling, until she loses all that matters to her and suddenly must overcome a variety of factors ranged against her: physical injuries, criminal elements, and time. Courageously battling back from near-death after a traffic accident that claimed her husband’s life, she sets out to find her missing son, dragooning the reluctant aid of Devon Masters, a private investigator/ex-cop with his own background of trauma and loss. Together they follow a vanishing trail from New England to Georgia. In their quest, they are followed by a psychotic figure from Devon’s past, whom they must confront and defeat. They will encounter a reclusive Traveler clan, The MacKinnons, who have developed theft and murder into a perverted art. Their search becomes a journey of discovery. During its course, Libby and Devon will move beyond their individual pain and loss, and find renewal in an unexpected love.
