Ruby’s last whereabouts were her shift at a local coffeehouse where the last footage on security cameras is ruby reaching under the counter to turn the cameras off, which makes authorities think she might have known her abductor. Neither her boyfriend nor her friends are offering up any information.
Being in Queens brings Elsa back to her own childhood home that her father recently sold. And that causes memories of her own dark past, one that she still hasn’t forgotten as evident by the scars on her arms. As Elsa is trying to solve the case and bring Ruby back home, alive, she learns of other abductions that might be connected to Ruby’s disappearance. But everything comes to a head for Elsa as she struggles with her past and the events of the present.
Overall, a solid first crime novel and hopefully the start of a new series. We need to see more of Elsa and Lex.
