She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past—slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when shes closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.
