When a young girl presumed dead for decades is spotted in Miami, long-buried secrets begin to emerge in a thriller by the acclaimed Cuban-American author. In 1992, a few weeks after Hurricane Andrew wreaks havoc across South Florida, a father and his infant daughter crash their car into a canal in Miami. The man’s body is recovered, but his baby girl is never found. Then, twenty-three years later, reported sightings of the girl begin to emerge. And the impossibly cold case is reopened. Detective Maria Duquesne has been assigned to the case, but she has very little in the way of clues. Is it really possible that the girl is still alive? Or is this simply the persistence of a desperate mother who will not accept the death of her daughter? To get answers, she will have to dig deep into the Latino communities of Miami and Hialeah as she confronts an increasingly tangled and dangerous mystery.
