When Victor Lucius was sixteen years old, a few cruel words out of his mouth led to a brutal tragedy, one that Vic has been trying to make up for ever since. Now, working as a missing persons expert, Vic tracks down and rescues people from abandonment or abuse, trying to alleviate the guilt constantly weighing him down.

His latest case—a boy who was kidnapped at the age of two and then held captive for nineteen years—is by far the darkest of his career. If there’s any chance of Vic finally redeeming himself, helping this boy might be it.

But rescuing Colby from his basement prison is only the beginning, and brings a whole new struggle to Vic’s life:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vic helps find lost boys. When he finds a boy who has been held captive for nineteen years, he has no idea that the young man will become the most important person in his life.

Colby has only know pain his entire existence. When he’s rescued by Vic he enters a strange new world he knows nothing about. As he learns to cope with the strangeness he comes to trust Vic.

I liked the other books in the series but this one was the most gut wrenching and also stunningly sad. Watching Colby blossom under Vic’s care was very well done. The rest of the characters from the other books appear to help Colby settle into his new life. This was not an easy book to read but it was ultimately satisfying.
