It was my first novel, so it suffers from what I now call 'First Novel Syndrome'. I made a lot of the usual mistakes made by new authors - like boring the crap out of readers with too much back story at the beginning, for example.
I published the first edition without having it professionally edited, a mistake I will forever have to live with. Those first paperback copies eagerly distributed to friends and family will forever haunt me - lurking quietly on the bookshelves of people who read the error-riddled story and never want to speak of it again. It's ok. I don't want to speak of it either.
This edition, several revisions later, has been professionally edited and had the cover professionally redone. Some readers have really enjoyed the book, according to some of the reviews on Amazon.
When a little girl disappears from her Vancouver Island neighborhood, a massive search yields no results. The police search ends, but her father refuses to give up. When Annabelle appears to him in his dreams, he concludes that she is dead and redoubles his efforts to find the person responsible. Annabelle begs him to hurry because the predator already has his sights set on his next victim - her best friend, Amy. Jim promises to keep Amy safe, and resolves to exact revenge on his daughter's abductor.
