"A polished page-turner. Braun writes with verve and competence in this stunning debut."--"IndieReader" When Celia Donnelly's husband, Jonathon, surprises her with a family vacation to Mexico, the harried book editor couldn't be happier. She is overworked and exhausted, a situation that has taken a toll on her eighteen-year marriage, not to mention her relationship with her teenaged son. Escaping the perpetually rainy Pacific Northwest for the sugary sands of Mexico could be just what the doctor ordered. Yet shortly after their arrival south of the border, a chance encounter with a stranger sparks illicit memories of a former affair. The moment passes, but that brief encounter proves enough to change her life forever. Hours later, Celia is lured from the beach and abducted off the street. At first a seemingly random victim, Celia quickly realizes her captors know exactly who she is. Desperate for news of her family and devastated by the betrayal of someone she trusts, Celia, along with an unlikely ally, is soon running for her life. Pursued from the balmy shores of Mexico to the steamy thickets of the jungle, to the crisp, cold mountains of Zurich, Celia will stop at nothing to find her way home. "Nerve-grinding suspense. Strewn with jewels of beautiful writing and apt metaphors--enough to bring on a case of writer's envy."--Jessica Page Morrell, author of "Bullies, Bastards, and Bitches: How to Write the Bad Guys of Fiction" "The book is absolutely unputdownable."--"Rose City Reader"
