Maggie Gardiner and Jack Renner hunt a wild child’s killer
The body of 15-year-old Rachael Donahue—abandoned by society, raised in foster homes, and violently unapproachable—lies at the bottom of a stairwell at Firebird, the secure facility for Cleveland’s juvenile offenders. Forensics expert Maggie Gardiner and homicide detective Jack Renner learn that the girl was involved with a much older man.
But Rachael’s not the only Firebird resident to die. A ten-year-old “wild child” has overdosed in the infirmary. Maggie knows appearances are deceiving, and Jack knows all about deceit. So they suspect someone is carrying out a deadly agenda.
As Maggie’s ex-husband gets nearer to uncovering their secrets, Maggie and Jack must protect a vulnerable child from a killer with unfathomable demons.
