Another excellent book by Ms. Blackstock. The police chief hits a man who was shot before the accident. Then he disap-pears. What next. Babies start disappearing . Who is kidnap-ping them. Will the chief be found . Will the babies be return-ed. Maybe Blair and Morgan can find the answers.

that the police are doing nothing to find him. She has a gut feeling that the man's wife is responsible for Cade's disappearance.

The story was interesting and one that I found myself wanting to keep reading. I had many questions that need to be answered. Why did Cade disappear? Would they find him? Who is kidnapping the babies from the hospital? There is a lot of talk about Christianity and praying to God. Blair has not been a believer for some time now. Will she finally believe that there is a God?

I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I'm giving this one 3 stars, like the first book in this series. For the same reasons. Irritating characters, but redeeming storytelling. I will probably not read the rest of this series.
