Life hasn’t been easy for Shannon Knight, raised by a single mother, money’s been tight, but it’s about to get a whole lot worse. When her mother uproots them, to be with a boyfriend, then suddenly goes missing, it leaves Shannon facing homelessness in a strange city where she knows no one. Convinced that this man is responsible for her mother’s disappearance, Shannon sets out to prove it, with surprising consequences.
“My mother’s missing.” Shannon Knight strived to keep the panic from simply overwhelming her. “She’s been gone all night.”
“You’ll have to wait forty eight hours before filing a missing person’s report.” The 911 operator sounded weary, fed up.
“But something must have happened to her. She’d never not call me like this, unless she can’t…”
“I don’t make the rules.”
Oh what was the use? Shannon slammed down the phone, went over to the window. Pimps, prostitutes and drug addicts congregated on the corner. Across the harbor, the Vancouver skyline wavered through the mist. What was she going to do? If only there was someone to turn to. But she didn’t know anyone here. She’d never felt so alone before, and full of dark thoughts and fear.
