Even her closest friends cana (TM)t tell him what Sydney was really doing in the weeks before her disappearance. Now as the days pass without a word, Tim is forced to face not only the fact that Sydney is missing but that the daughter hea (TM)s loved and nurtured, the daughter he thought he knew as well as anyone, is a virtual stranger.
As he retraces Sydneya (TM)s steps, searching for clues to her secret life, Tim discovers that the suburban Connecticut town he always thought of as perfectly ordinary has a darker side. But what he doesna (TM)t know is just how dark. Because while hea (TM)s out searching for his daughter, questioning everyone who might have known her, someone is watching him.

The closer Tim comes to the truth, the closer he comes to every parenta (TM)s worst nightmarea ]and the kind of evil only a parenta (TM)s love has a chance in hell of stopping.
Tim is an average guy. He sells cars. He has an ex-wife who's moved in with a man whose moody son spends more time online than he should. Tim's girlfriend is turning out to be a bit of a flake. It's not a life without hassles, but nothing will prepare him for the nightmare that's about to begin.His daughter, Sydney, has vanished into thin air. At the hotel where she supposedly worked, no one has ever heard of her. Even her closest friends seem to be at a loss. Now, as the days pass without word, Tim must face the fact that not only is Sydney missing, but that he may not have known his daughter as well as he thought.As he retraces Sydney's steps, Tim discovers that the suburban Connecticut town he always thought of as idyllic is anything but. What he doesn?t know is that his every move is being watched. There are others who want to find Sydney as much as Tim does.But they?re not planning a welcome-home party.The closer Tim comes to the truth, the closer he comes to every parent's worst nightmare ? and the kind of evil only a parent's love has a chance in hell of stopping.
