Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan's mission is to bring closure to families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish -- her own beloved daughter Bonnie was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers Eve had longed for. His twenty-five-year-old son may or may not be dead and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence. He cannot go to the police without risking his own secrets. Doane needs Eve Duncan's skills and he'll do anything to get them.
