Summary: Alex PrÃ©vostâ€”kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cageâ€”is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first?
Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possibleâ€”but first he must understand more about her.
As he uncovers the details of the young womanâ€™s singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alexâ€™s life will be the least of Commandant Verhoevenâ€™s considerable challenges.
