A missing woman. A ruthless killer. A PI running out of time.


When PI Jorja Knight arrives in the ancient, mysterious city of Istanbul, she knows something is wrong. Her best friend, Gabriella Rizzo, isn’t at the airport to meet her as promised. Gab’s suitcases are at the guest house—but she’s vanished. She’s not answering her phone, and no one has heard from her in days.

Alone In a city of fourteen million people, Jorja faces her worst fear—her best friend has been abducted. Jorja’s desperate race to find Gab plunges her into a dangerous world of lies, secrets, and greed, where witnesses take bribes, suspects won’t talk, and corrupt politicians barter for favors. With time running out to save her best friend, Jorja must navigate the murky depths of Istanbul’s dark underbelly, where every move could be her last.

Or is it too late?
