When the man who had kidnapped and nearly killed Audrey Markum was arrested and bound for trial, she thought the worst was behind her. Then the panic attacks began.
Throughout the summer Audrey has pushed back against the fear, enjoying her work as a wedding photographer and the growing relationship she has with Detective “Rod” Rodriguez. As August finds Audrey steeling herself to face her attacker in court, the panic returns in the form of a terror that confronts her whenever she tries to step over the threshold of her own apartment. Already battling anxiety and fear, Audrey is suddenly blindsided by the news that one of her friend Sandy’s twin daughters has been kidnapped from her daycare center.
With every hour, the chances of recovering the infant Rosey seem to drop.
Detective Rodriguez and his partner are heading up the manhunt and find a possible lead when they discover that a daycare worker from the same center has also disappeared. However, when a body washes up on the river’s shore, that slim hope plummets.
As the trial begins, Audrey is fighting with time itself. She finds herself urging the hours in court to move as quickly as possible while simultaneously wishing she could lengthen the time she has to spend helping the detectives in the search for Rosey.
Something tells her she can’t have it both ways.
