Appearances can be deceiving. And deception can be dangerous.
In Southern California, where the sun shines daily and make-believe has its own industry, it's hard to tell what is real and what is merely illusion.
When two beautiful sisters fresh off the bus from Minnesota go missing, private investigator Madeline Dawkins must help find them before it's too late.
The case turns out to be anything but simple. As Madeline and Mike dig through clues, they encounter more questions than answers.
The case will take Mike deep into his troubled past, and Madeline into a cold case that could expose the dirty deeds that have made people wealthy beyond imagination, at a deadly cost for others to pay. Ruthless criminals will go to any length to protect what they have built, and it will take all of Madeline's intelligence and grit to tear down the whole rotten mess without getting crushed.
Who is behind the disappearance of the two girls?
And how far is Madeline willing to go to protect her best friend?
GIRL TRAP is the third installment in the Madeline Dawkins series.
