Baker & Taylor
Receiving an anonymous plea for help in her fan mail, Lydia Strong investigates a girl's disappearance and a dangerous snuff ring, discovering when her mother's murderer is prematurely released that someone wants her to stay away from the case. By the author of Angel Fire. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
A gripping novel of obsession, greed, and revenge, Lisa Miscione's brilliant follow-up to her acclaimed debut, Angel Fire, has Lydia Strong in search of a missing teen and a dangerous man from her past who wants her dead.

Fifteen and gorgeous, Tatiana Quinn disappears from her Miami bedroom sometime after midnight. Her backpack, $160 stashed in her jewelry box, and her favorite clothes are also missing. The police conclude she ran away. Her wealthy father quickly posts a million-dollar reward for her safe return. But the beautiful teen has not been found.

Then Pulitzer Prize-winning true crime writer Lydia Strong gets an audio tape in the mail. Becoming a celebrity has made Lydia a magnet for requests from psychotics, prisoners, and the desperate families of murder victims. Cautiously she plays the tape and hears a girl calling herself Tatiana pleading for help. Now Lydia and her lover P.I. Jeffrey Mark, an ex-FBI agent, rush to Florida...and enter into a nightmare. Something seems fishy about the Quinn household. Something seems strange about the original investigation. And someone very powerful wants to kill the case. Simplest method? Make sure a nosy writer is good...and dead.
