Myron Bolitar overhears some young girls in his basement talking about drinking at a party. He is concerned about them driving and drinking. He insists the girls promise him that if they have been drinking or in some kind of bind and don’t want to call their parents, they can call him no matter the time. He promises not to tell their parents.
It is several nights later when Myron gets a call at two in the morning. When he picks up the girl, she asks that he drive her to a friend’s house and not to tell her parents. Myron is a little suspicious, but he made a promise.
The girl is soon declared missing. Weeks earlier another girl disappeared.
Myron feels responsible for the girl and sets out to find her. Leads take him in several directions with several suspects. The question is: what happened to the two girls. Did they run away or were they kidnapped?
I thought the story was very suspenseful with some good twists. It was worth reading.
