Private investigator Martha Holmes is falling out of love and back into her life – or so she thinks, until a decade-old missing persons case comes her way. Four teenage girls have been missing for ten years, and their families have never given up looking. Desperate, Thomas Remmy turns to Martha, relying on her solid reputation to find some answers about his sister.Martha isn’t so sure she can carry the weight of these girls’ lives and what their disappearances have done to the community, especially when she discovers there are more victims. The shambles of her marriage have left her uncertain of her capabilities and unsure of who she even is. She elicits the help of her best friend, Daisy, to ensure the community hasn’t forgotten Ottawa’s lost girls. Is there a chance to find them alive, still, or will Martha deliver the news she dreads most? As she sorts through leads that aren’t what they seem, and as more lives are endangered, it becomes apparent this suspect hasn’t forgotten the girls either – and might not let Martha get to the truth, or to them.
About Lavinia Thompson
I am a 31-year old author who wants to share the worlds inside my head with everyone. The theme woven through my books is survival. We survive adversity, trauma, hardship and obstacles every day. I survived a decade of child abuse and domestic violence. I want fellow survivors to know they aren’t alone. You matter. It is okay to hit rock bottom, to fall, but we don’t need to unpack and live there. Writing is what helped me survive, and continues to do so. It has been my life-saving foundation while struggling with mental illness and PTSD. Now, I want the worlds inside my head to reach you.
