Book Summary

Vancouver PI Dave Wakeland returns, hot on the trail of a missing college student who may or may not have stolen half a million dollars.

Tabitha Sorenson is missing. The bright but unstable student disappeared in the aftermath of a scandal involving millions of dollars in college funds, and her professor, Dana Essex, hires Vancouver PI Dave Wakeland to track down the student she just can't forget.

When Wakeland discovers Tabitha has in fact stolen the money and is hiding out with her lover, Essex is crushed to learn that Tabitha is in love with someone else. The next morning, Tabitha has been murdered and Essex has disappeared.

Hounded by Tabitha's friends, the police, the press, and his own troubled conscience, Wakeland tries desperately to find Essex and make sense of what happened. Could it all have been a ruse from the start, and is Wakeland just another in a long line of suckers?

While searching for Essex and investigating Sonia's partner, Wakeland encounters criminals, anarchists, and crooked authority figures - all of them desperate people who will stop at nothing to guard their secrets.
