A GREAT BOOK! I devoured it in 24 hours. A friend gave it to me, picked up from a second hand book stall, it’s tattered and stained but I gave it a go and I am so pleased I did. The heartbreaking story of a mother searching for 10 years for the baby ripped out of her arms is mesmerizing and the ending had me in tears. ( )

Milla Boone's 6 week old baby boy was snatched out of her arms on a bright sunny day while she was shopping in an open air market in Mexico. The aftermath of the kidnapping had a profound impact on her life. She founded an organization to help people look for missing children and she continued to look for her own son.
Ten years pass and Milla is no closer to finding her son, despite the fact that her son's kidnapping made news headlines. Her single minded drive to recover her son has alienated her family, cost her her husband and sent her into very dangerous situations.

Heartbreak and obsession are two key elements that drive this novel, but it's the intense plot and interesting characters that will have readers up-all-night. ( )

A truly heart wrenching story that was totally captivating and full of exciting action. An intense, emotional and realistic portrayal of the heroines struggle. She showed so much strength of character. It begins with Milla experiencing a horrible tragedy then skips ahead ten years when she is running an organization that finds lost children.

I had no idea this was going to be such a sad book (in places) and made me a bit weepy. Ten years ago, young mother's baby is snatched out of her arms in Mexico - never to be seen again. She becomes obsessed with finding him, running an organization called Finders to help others who have lost loved ones. Then she meets Diaz, an assassin who can help her find out who stole her baby. I was not as into this book due to the sad premise and it was hard to really fall for Diaz, considering his background and how remote he was. Not my favorite Linda Howard, but good, and on audio I did whiz through it! ( )

Book description
Count your blessings; they can be snatched away in an instant. It is a sentiment Milla Edge knows too well. With an astonishing blend of savvy, instinct, and passion, Milla displays an uncanny gift for finding lost children. When all seems helpless, desperate souls from across the country come to her for hope and results. Driven by an obsessive desire to fill the void in other people’s lives, Milla throws herself into every case - all the while trying to outrun the brutal emotions stemming from a horrific tragedy in her past.

Traveling to a small village in Mexico on a reliable tip, Milla begins to uncover the dire fate of countless children who have disappeared over the years in the labyrinth of a sinister baby-smuggling ring. The key to nailing down the organization may rest with an elusive one-eyed man. To find him, Milla joins forces with James Diaz, a suspicious stranger known as the Tracker who conceals his own sinister agenda.

As the search intensifies, the mission becomes more treacherous. For the ring is part of something far larger and more dangerous, reaching the highest echelons of power and influence. Caught between growing passion and imminent peril, Milla suddenly finds herself the hunted - in the crosshairs of an invisible, lethal assassin who aims to silence her permanently.
