Twenty-two-year-old car thief Kelsey Money thinks it's the worst scheme her boyfriend Matt and his drug-fueled brother have ever come up with. But Matt's the planner. He's the one Kelsey's always relied on.

Then she discovers the part she wasn’t told - that six-year-old Holly isn’t going home alive. So, Kelsey makes a decision. It's one that'll take her whole world apart. And once she starts, there's no going back.

Elizabeth McClaine can't even tell the police what her daughter was wearing when she disappeared. Soon after Holly was born with Down Syndrome and a cleft palate, she was placed in the care of a nanny while her mother battled postpartum depression. When Holly is kidnapped and Elizabeth learns the detective on the case has already failed one kidnapped child, she vows not to fail hers.
