Overshadowing her life is the search to find her parents’ killer who knows she is the only witness. She, as Melissa Rompart, was only five years old at the time.

Along comes Jeremy Goodman, born again believer and investigator who rocks Christine’s world in more ways than one, although from a distance. He also looks for missing people but is the primary investigator for his father’s law practice. The book is available all over the world where Amazon books are sold
