"Denfeld, a death penalty investigator, paints a distressingly realistic portrait of life on the street"

Naomi Cottle, a private investigator who finds missing children, is looking for her own sister. The trouble is, she doesn’t know her name: Naomi herself escaped from captivity at the age of nine, and was found running through an Oregon strawberry field at night, her memory wiped clean by terror.... Denfeld, a death penalty investigator, paints a distressingly realistic portrait of life on the street, but her writing sometimes becomes rather florid as the two elements of her story begin to intertwine.
