“I believe you are traveling with Cal Brighton and you have details about the missing girl. You are either being coerced by Cal or believe in his innocence and are attempting to solve the kid’s disappearance and clear Cal’s name in the process.” Jet paused for only a second. “How am I doing?”
“Yes, maybe, no, yes, yes.” I responded honestly but still in an attempt to confuse him.
“Got it. You are with Cal, you might have details about the girl, you are traveling with him of your own accord, you want to solve the case, and prove Cal had nothing to do with Samantha’s disappearance.”
When seven-year old Samantha Stewart goes missing from the sleepy little town of Ditters Ferry, someone has to be the hero and find her.
Nobody thought it would be Jimi Smith.
When clumsy and impetuous Jimi stumbles into the aftermath of the kidnapping, digging for her next big news story, she somehow ends up in the middle of it. Forced to partner with no-nonsense, former special ops agent, Cal Brighton, they must work together to solve the case and find the girl – in five short days. Halfway across the country and on the run from the cops, Jimi realizes she’s in the car with the man who is the number one suspect.
But Jimi continues to believe in Cal’s innocence and helps administer the plan to get to Washington and dig up what the kidnappers really want – a decades-old briefcase buried in the ground.
Will they make it to Washington and get the briefcase in time to save Samantha? Join Jimi in this exhilarating, thrilling mystery as she travels across the country, attempting to outsmart, outrun and outwit the kidnappers and save young Samantha.
