There's a secret to saving the girl. Nicki Pearl is the perfect daughter-every parent's dream. And that of strangers, too. Wherever she goes, she's being watched. Each stalker is different from the last, except for one thing-their alarming obsession with Nicki. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Nicki's father is turning to someone who can protect her: retired private detective and ex-Navy SEAL Jon Lancaster. Teaming up with FBI agent and former abduction victim Beth Daniels, Lancaster can help-his way. He's spent most of his career dispatching creeps who get off on terrorizing the vulnerable. Unlicensed, and unrestricted, he plays dirty.But this case is unusual. Why so many men? Why this one girl? Does Nicki have something to hide? Or do her parents? Trawling the darkest depths of southern Florida, Lancaster faces a growing tide of secrets and deception. And the deeper he digs, the more he realizes that finding the truth won't be easy. Because there's more to this case than meets the eye.

Professional reviews

"Former Navy SEAL Jon Lancaster doesn't need to work anymore; instead he applies his impressive investigative skills to rescue abducted children. Narrator Patrick Lawler's characterization of the supposedly gutsy Lancaster suggests more whimsy than grit. Lawlor's performance is best during the fast-paced chases but falls short of engaging the listener with the occasional rambling background narratives. Lancaster agrees to partner with FBI agent Beth Daniels on a case in South Florida involving a wealthy banker's 15-year-old daughter who is being stalked by shifty pedophiles. Lawlor's dialogue offers minimal variation, and his female characters, especially the teenage girl, sound stiff and unnatural. Overall, a passable narration of a marginally entertaining thriller.
