Unable to quickly determine if Erica is telling the truth, and unwilling to leave the little girl's fate to chance, Michael has no choice but to follow the elusive trail of the child he has always wanted and never knew he had..."

I was very uninterested in these characters. They seemed to be on autopilot and just acting and reacting to add pages to the book.

My dislike started with the mother showing up to the door of the alleged father to demand he helps her find their missing dauther. Wait, for ten years you have kept this daughter hidden but you chose this moment to tell him he is a father? Is he FBI or something that he will be able to do what the police can't?

Father, your 10 year ex shows up and tells you that, surprise! you are a daddy, and you just believe her and go on a chase to find this child. Uhummm....

There really was no depth to this story. I was concerned about this fictitious child because I am a whimp, not becuase the author did something to get emotionally involved in the story.
