This high-interest, low-vocabulary novella is intended for adult basic education (ABE) and English as a Second Language (ESL) readers. Shelley Vincent has been missing for over a year. Her fiance, Alberta Romaine, is desperate to find out what happened to her. With Christmas less than a week away and no plans to speak of, PI Anna Sweet is happy to take the case. But as Anna digs deeper into Shelley's past, she uncovers more questions than answers. Why would a woman with everything to live for simply disappear? Was Shelley murdered? And if so, why didn't the police find her body? Anna begins to have a bad feeling. She learns that her every move is being tracked...and she fears a killer is closing in. Whoever holds the key to Shelley Vincent's disappearance isn't talking -- and Anna Sweet is running out of time.
