In 1992, Luis Vega disappeared from his daughters’ lives without explanation. Although his twin, 9-year-old daughters formed separate conclusions about why he vanished, 20 years later his whereabouts are still a mystery and the emotional scars continue to tear his family apart.
Lizzie has made a lot of bad decisions throughout her adult life. She drinks too much. Takes too many drugs and continues choose the wrong men. She also can’t let the past go. For 20 years, she’s wondered why a man so loving and devoted as her father could leave his family without explanation. When a credible clue finally emerges as to her father might be, Lizzie ignores her sister’s advice and follows the lead – a lead that takes her down a dangerous path turning her into a person she doesn’t recognize.
It’s turned her into a murderer.
After all, isn’t she the reason Sophia is dead?
Emily is the better sister and always making the right choices – or so it seems. She isn’t interested in finding a man who left his family two decades ago. She has other things to worry about. She’s struggling to pay for her mother’s healthcare, who is slowly fading away from dementia. Her relationship with her married boss is threatening her promotion to detective and her physical safety. To make matters worse, she and Lizzie are further apart than ever.
When Lizzie takes off to chase their father’s ghost and disappears too, is when Emily’s carefully constructed life spins out of control.
The authorities say that girls and women go missing every day, especially those with a history of addiction and a propensity for hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Some are missed. Most are forgotten.
Emily knows this is true, but she can’t accept it. She won’t accept it. Letting go of Lizzie is not an option.
So when a pawnshop owner calls her with unexpected information about Lizzie’s disappearance, she heads south to the Arizona-Mexico border to bring her sister back at whatever cost. Yet, as Emily gets closer to the truth about Lizzie’s disappearance, she is forced to face her own truths about the ghost she’s running from and that she may not ever see her sister again.
