Publisher's Summary

A dark psychological suspense debut, the first in a new series featuring the brilliant, fearless, chaotic, and deeply flawed Nora Watts - a character as heartbreakingly troubled, emotionally complex, and irresistibly compelling as Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander and Jo Nesbø's Harry Hole.
It begins with a phone call that Nora Watts has dreaded for 15 years - since the day she gave her newborn daughter up for adoption. Bonnie has vanished. The police consider her a chronic runaway and aren't looking, leaving her desperate adoptive parents to reach out to her birth mother as a last hope.
A biracial product of the foster system, transient, homeless, scarred by a past filled with pain and violence, Nora knows intimately what happens to vulnerable girls on the streets. Caring despite herself, she sets out to find Bonnie with her only companion, her mutt Whisper, knowing she risks reopening wounds that have never really healed - and plunging into the darkness with little to protect her but her instincts and a freakish ability to detect truth from lies.
The search uncovers a puzzling conspiracy that leads Nora on a harrowing journey of deception and violence, from the gloomy rain-soaked streets of Vancouver to the icy white mountains of the Canadian interior to the beautiful and dangerous island where she will face her most terrifying demon. All to save a girl she wishes had never been born.

I really wanted to like this book because I live in Vancouver and it isn't often a book is set in my hometown. However, the story was full of holes, the characters, apart from the lead character, were not developed and the geographical inconsistencies were jarring (for someone familiar with the setting). In short, very disappointing.

Would make a great movie!

I could not stop listening to this one!
The story gradually gets better and better by the minute. Loved the unexpected turns of event & suspense as the narrator took us along Nora's journey to find her missing biological child.
It will make a good movie.
