By Cleave, Paul
When seven-year-old Alyssa is kidnapped, Deputy Noah Harper decides he will do what it takes to find her--but that means crossing lines he can never come back from. Finding the girl safe isn't enough to stop Noah from losing his job, his wife, and from being kicked out of Acacia ...Pines. He's told if he ever returns, he'll be put in jail and left there to rot. Now, 12 years later, comes a phone call. Alyssa is missing again and her father wants him to honor the promise he made to her all those years earlier--that he would never let anything bad happen to her again. To find her, Noah is going to have to head back to the pines, and come face to face with the past.Read more
