Five Days in Summer by Katia LiefSHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RIGHT BACK…

Before the long drive home from vacation on Cape Cod, Emily Parker made a quick run to the grocery store…and disappeared.

When her car is found abandoned in the parking lot, her husband, Will, turns to a retired FBI profiler named John Geary for help.

As her family scours the Cape for her, Emily’s thoughts are not on her own safety. Kept helpless in a madman’s lair, she watches him prepare a five-day countdown that will bring him to his real victim–her young son.

FIVE DAYS IN SUMMER is available from Amazon.
