A NovelBook - 2017
There's something about the disappearance of a beautiful young attorney, she leaves a Georgetown restaurant after a dispute with her husband, and is never seen alive again, that grips television news producer Virginia Knightly from the moment the 'MISSING' notice lands on her desk. A brilliant producer, but also a tormented soul and an isolated workaholic, Virginia, the only woman of power at her station, has an instant and eerie sense of connection to, indeed becomes obsessed with, the haunting eyes of the unnamed woman in this grainy photo. Despite skepticism from her peers, Knightly suspects this ambitious young lawyer may be at the heart of something far more sinister, which prompts her to abandon, only momentarily she tells herself, her producer role to go back into the field to investigate just what happened to Evelyn Carney. Risking her career, her sanity, and perhaps even her own life, Knightly dives deep into the dark underbelly of Washington D.C. only to find it's a place where politics and business restfully, sometimes criminally, collide, a place where ambition can be lethal.
