Mylas Grey is a private investigator, but don’t call him a private detective.
His job is to do background investigations for Senator Davis Allen, and that’s the only kind of investigation he’s interested in doing.
But then, Lizzie, the Senator’s daughter, goes missing from her campus apartment, and suddenly, just like that, Mylas finds himself back in his hometown of Columbia, Missouri, investigating her disappearance as if he were a run-of-the-mill private detective.
Solving the mystery of Lizzie’s disappearance isn’t easy . . .
Lizzie has a reputation for doing the unexpected, and she could have just left town for a few days without telling anyone. On the other hand, she could have done something stupid and gotten herself into some serious trouble.
Staying focused on the investigation isn’t easy . . .
When Mylas meets a beautiful photographer at his brother’s church, and she offers to help him find Lizzie, he finds himself getting a little distracted—well, maybe more than just a little distracted—and then the investigation is turned upside down when Mylas learns Lizzie was researching a judge with a secret past for an article in her campus newspaper.
Is the judge connected to Lizzie’s disappearance? What about Lizzie’s boyfriend or her college professor?
So many suspects. So little time.
