A freshman girl is being bullied and harassed by a bunch of wealthy classmates, and then one day, she disappears. Then she's found. Then she disappears again. It's up to private security man, Wilde, and famous TV lawyer, Hester Crimstein, to solve the case (or maybe cases...). How will they fare when everyone is lying and everybody seems to have their own agenda? How do you get a reader to start and finish a book in one day? You fill it with a mystery about a missing girl, a decades old body, a U.S. senator, a kidnapping and a boy who raised himself in the woods THEN you populate it with delightful, funny, tough-as-nails but relatable characters the reader wants to be friends with. That’s how. Hester is 70-some years old, a widow, a successful lawyer, and a hell of a spitfire. Wilde is a middle-aged loner who was found in the woods as a child, and doesn't remember anything before that. I fell in absolute love with these two, and I really hope this is a series and we get to read about them again. This is a twisty, fun page-turner with just fabulous characters. You should read it!
