Jimmy Tucker is dying. There’s only one person he wants to tell. His daughter—Milly. But when he gets home from the hospital, she’s vanished without a trace.
The inoperable brain aneurysm deep within Jimmy’s head could burst at any time—a cough, a sneeze, or a blow to the head could kill him instantly. With the police not interested in Milly’s disappearance, Jimmy takes things into his own hands and begins to look for his only daughter. But it doesn’t take him long to realise that his daughter is not the woman he thinks she is.
As he gradually discovers Milly’s shocking private life, Jimmy enlists the help of Gareth Dawson, an ex-crook with a big heart. But Gareth can only help Jimmy up to a point.
As the pressure mounts, can Jimmy uncover the truth about Milly’s disappearance before it’s too late—for either of them?

I was really excited about this book as it has such a great premise. In fact it was a wonderful story that deals with both the good and the bad in people.
I really liked the main character he was not an easy man but he loved his missing daughter. It shows his struggles with both a very serious prognosis for his health as well as finding out where Milly is.
Very strong book and I really think the writing style was brilliant with so much imagery. I truly think that this author will become one of my favourite authors as he has so much talent. His characters while not always likable are memorable.
