When newly-released convict Faye Atkins reports her boyfriend Mark missing, the police don’t believe her. Never mind that she was innocent. Never mind that he never made it to work. In her desperation she turns to an old friend, Ashley Rafferty, for help.
Detective Inspector Rafferty never could say no. If someone asked her for help, she gave it. No ifs or buts.
When a troubled girl from Rafferty’s past calls asking for help to find her missing boyfriend, Rafferty can’t stop herself from rushing to the rescue. She has to find him, get him home safe, and do it before Morton loses patience.
It wasn’t the first time Rafferty went out of her way to help somebody.
