Gutsy grandmother
and cancer survivor Hannah Ives tries to
solve a most disturbing mystery --
the kidnapping of her young grandson. Talley's writing flows rapidly, and her well-developed characters are never overshadowed by the mounting suspense. This author is quickly making
a name for herself as a superior
mystery writer.

Hannah's daughter, Emily, and her husband, Dante, are opening a spa near Hannah's home in Annapolis, Md. When their infant son, Timmy, is abducted from the spa's nursery, his parents are inconsolable. So amateur sleuth Hannah begins following a woman she thinks may have taken Timmy. Though the police and FBI are investigating the kidnapping, Hannah may just solve the crime before they do. (Avon, Sep., 272 pp., $6.99)
