Catherine excels at helping desperate people disappear. But now she must use her unique skill set to find a missing woman in this electrifying novel from the author of The Burial Society .

Eva Lombard is being followed. Or so she suspects. . . .

Londoners Eva and her husband Pete are in Hong Kong for a romantic getaway when Pete wakes up in their hotel room to an empty bed, and his wife gone without a trace. His worst fears are confirmed: Eva wasn't imagining things. Suddenly, Pete finds himself the number one suspect in his wife's disappearance, trapped in a foreign country with no one to turn to. He calls on the CEO of his investment firm, Forrest "Holly" Holcomb, who enlists the help of his ex-flame, Catherine, the enigmatic operator behind the darknet witness protection program known as The Burial Society.

As a favor to Holly, Catherine sends her team of highly trained Society members on a dangerous chase through Hong Kong to find Eva--while she takes care of pressing business at home. Not only is Catherine tasked with protecting a family that knows too much from a vengeful pharmaceutical company, a mission that takes her to Mexico City, but an FBI agent tracking down the missing wife and child of a charismatic developer comes dangerously close to exposing the Society's secrets.

In these intertwining storylines that converge in unexpected ways, not everyone is who they appear to be--and not everyone who is lost wants to be found.
