Dublin PI Ed Loy thought he had laid all his ghosts to rest. But when two young women go missing from a film set, he knows his past has caught up with him. Twenty years ago, three girls disappeared while Loy's longtime friend, film director Jack Donovan, was shooting a movie in Malibu. They were never found. Now Donovan's filming an Irish historical epic on location—and production grinds to a halt when two female cast members fail to show up to work. Fearing that Donovan or one of his close associates is responsible, Loy races to uncover the truth before a third girl vanishes—a hunt that's pulling him far from home, back to L.A., leaving a cunning killer free to strike at what's dearest to Ed Loy's heart.See all Product Description
