Assistant State’s Attorney Daphne Montgomery has been told to take time off after recent personal trauma. But she refuses to sit on the side lines when she meets a six-year-old girl the police call Angel.
She needed protection…
Angel hasn’t spoken a word since she was found four days ago next to a burned-out car, frozen with shock, not far from the bodies of two adults who may or may not have been her parents.
They needed to find the person responsible…
FBI Special Agent Joseph Carter knows that helping Angel is exactly what Daphne needs. But when Daphne gets Angel to talk, a mysterious and chilling crime begins to unravel – one that will drive Daphne into the darkest corners of her past as she and Joseph track a ruthless killer.
After a traumatizing kidnapping, Daphne’s boss insists that she take a break. But as soon as she hears about the case of Angel, she does not care about it. Angel is a six-year-old girl who has not said a word since she was found four days earlier by the police next to a burnt-out car.
Near the wreck two dead bodies have been found of which it is unclear whether these are her parents. When Daphne succeeds in getting Angel to talk, she gets a mysterious and terrifying story about a crime that goes beyond Daphne’s suspicion. A crime that causes Daphne to face her own past
