Can Campbell McBride find her father before it’s too late? Campbell McBride drives to her father’s house in Murray, Kentucky, dreading telling him she’s lost her job as an English professor. Private Investigator Bill McBride isn’t home or at his office in town. His brash young employee, Nick Emerson, hasn’t heard from Bill since the night before when he learned Bill was working on a new case.
When Campbell’s dad hasn’t shown up by late afternoon, she and Nick follow up on a phone number he’d jotted on a memo sheet. They discover who last spoke to Bill, but they also find a dead body.
They find Bill’s car, locked and empty in a secluded spot. Now Campbell and Nick must get past their differences and work together to search for him.
