Makayla hears children crying.
People don’t understand, and it’s difficult for Special Agent Makayla to explain. In her mind, she doesn’t have special powers. It’s just fallout from the days when she was blind, before the operation that restored her sight. Back then, she’d learned to use her other senses, rely on her instincts… and listen intensely. Except her uncanny ability is beyond reason.
Because of her gift, she works with the Special Victims Unit and takes on all the cases of vanishing kids where the usual processes haven’t worked. Sickened by many of her assignments, she finds joy when she sees the kids free and healing. Her biggest stress… they just keep on disappearing.
Dean Andrews desperately needs help. His nine-year-old niece goes missing and the only person he’s told can save her is a kook who hears children’s cries. How can he put his trust in this wild-haired woman with mysterious eyes, and a heart bigger than her tiny body?
Yet he has no other choice. His sister begs him to find her little girl… and he promises. Now he must deliver. Time is running out and everywhere he’s turned so far… leads to yet another dead end. Working as a team they scour the dark web, become involved in webcam sites, and do whatever is necessary to find his niece before she’s lost forever.
