Runaway – Retrieval, Inc. Series – Book 1

If she can’t stay hidden, she must run—again.

While tracing his missing teenage sister, Detective Mitch Saunders uncovers a disturbing link to one of his old, and very cold, cases: Laura Macnamara, a young woman who walked out her backdoor and simply disappeared. Runaway, or victim? He never knew, but is about to find out. Because Laura—a sexy, grown woman now known as Charlie Hart—holds the key to his sister’s safety.

Except Charlie refuses to help him. Between her carefully guarded secrets and well-founded fears, too much is at stake to look back. Nor can she consider a future with Mitch—a man who will expose her to evil, if that’s what it takes to bring his sister home. He leaves Charlie no choice but to run—again. Or is it already too late?
