( A DANGEROUS SEARCH )
It all start with a txt: Please, Wylie, I need your help.
Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before; save her best friend from herself.
This time it’s different though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent off the rails doesn’t feel right, but Wylie has no choice: she has to ignore her gut instinct and go with him.
But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous, fast. As Wylie and Jasper head farther and farther north into the dense woods of Maine, Wylie struggles to control her growing sense that something is really wrong.
What isn’t Cassie telling them? And could finding her be only the beginning?

Derek is desperate to prove his brother prove his brother didn’t deserve to die. And if kidnapping his brother’s killer is the only way to the truth, then he’ll go to extremes. But Chris’s truth is far more dangerous than Derek could have imagined, and knowing could cost both their lives.
