Set in Victoria, British Columbia, Nelson Brunanski's stirring mystery novel reveals a social worker's daring efforts to safeguard children, even as she unravels an increasingly deadly series of events.
Experienced, competent and gutsy, social worker Victoria Day does what ever it takes to protect the kids in her care. Though most of her days are filled with interviews, home visits, court hearings and the like, today is shockingly different. One of her clients is kidnapped right out from under her nose. And this, on the heels of a suspicious accident that left another child in a coma. Is there a link between the two? While seeking the answer Victoria finds herself drawn into a world where families and violence intersect, and where not only children's lives are at risk.
