Romantic suspense meets Hitchcockian storytelling in New York Times–bestselling author Dorothy Eden’s nail-biter of a novel about a little girl who vanishes on a train
The job is simple: to escort seven-year-old Francesca from Rome to England. But it quickly becomes a nightmare for Kate Tempest when Francesca vanishes aboard the Paris Express. Not a single one of Kate’s fellow passengers admits to seeing the girl. In fact, nobody remembers her getting onboard at all. But Kate’s discovery of Francesca’s beloved doll convinces her that Francesca is the victim of foul play.
Who took her off the train—and why? And who is the insolent, dark-eyed stranger who keeps turning up? Kate’s desperate search takes her across Europe … and into the arms of a man she is not sure she can trust as she searches for a way out of a tightening web of lies, deception, and deadly malice.
