On a layover in Atlanta, Joshua Fields meets Morgan Reynolds, and his life changes. They have drinks at an airport bar and a deep parting kiss that spurs him to scrap his plans to travel to Tampa to close a commercial real estate deal for his father’s company. Instead, he tries to follow Morgan, who turns out to be a missing person wanted by police in connection with the disappearance of Giles Caldwell, a prominent citizen in a small Kentucky town and CEO of the tech company where Morgan once worked. Joshua, who takes Xanax to alleviate his fear of flying, is ready for a change, especially after pouring out his heart to Morgan. And Morgan is a catalyst for that change, but he needs the truth from her before making a commitment.
VERDICT Bell (Somebody’s Daughter) is a reliable author in the psychological thriller category. He takes his well-drawn characters on a twisty trail in their search for the elusive truth, which here comes with an unexpectedly comforting conclusion.
