Isabel Griffin has done her best to move on since her boyfriend, Max Adair, vanished without a trace eight years ago, leaving her heartbroken -- and pregnant. Eerily enough, this isnít the first time someone Isabel loves has gone missing. When she was sixteen, her mother disappeared, and her father became obsessed with finding his long-lost wife -- at the expense of parenting Isabel. Determined not to repeat her fatherís mistakes, Isabel works hard to become a respected archaeologist and a loving mother to her daughter, Finn, a little girl with very unusual abilities. But while Isabel is on a dig in Barbados, she receives a disturbing phone call. The hauntingly familiar voice on the other end speaks just four words -- ďIsabel. Keep her safe.Ē -- before theyíre disconnected. Isabel tries to convince herself that the caller canít possibly be Max. But what if it is, and Finn is in danger? As one mysterious event after another occurs, she canít shake the feeling that, despite what everyone else believes, Finnís father is alive -- and heís desperately trying to reach her.
