The Lost Girl
Amy Robbins suffers a tragedy no woman should endure when her husband and daughter are killed in a tragic accident. The Stanford law partner’s life spirals downward as she loses her career, her life savings, and the will to live. But while biding time in a dead-end job, she stumbles onto something that lays bare a disturbing truth at the heart of a tragic lie. Trouble is, someone stands in her way: fixer Mickey Keller.
“Alan Jacobson expertly ratchets up the tension and shows us that the most courageous heroes are those with everything to lose.”
—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of
Rizzoli & Isles
