Sergeant Nita Slowater has just reconnected with Grandma Greene after years of estrangement when she discovers the elderly woman missing from her home. When local law enforcement refuses to take the disappearance of the 85-year-old woman seriously, Nita turns to the Special Crimes Team and to a private investigator, Jaz Wheeler. Nita can’t stand the thought of losing Grandma Greene, yet the death of an elderly woman during her last case haunts her. Will she be too late again? Who would want to kidnap an old woman? Is it the rabid fundamentalist preacher, Reverend Abraham Thomas, who accused Merlie Greene of an unholy alliance with Satan? Is Grandma Greene’s disappearance linked to the 15-year-old murder of her only blood-related granddaughter, Chelsea Greene? Or did the elderly woman possess an artifact valuable enough to kidnap and, perhaps, to kill for? As the case flounders for lack of clues, Nita discovers the involvement of psychic Jaimie Wolfwalker. Though the woman had been helpful in a previous case, Nita doesn’t hold with all that woo-woo crap and aggressively questions the woman’s presence in yet another case with an elderly woman missing. Can Nita overcome her own deeply rooted prejudice and antagonism to work with Wolfwalker? Can they find Grandma Greene in time to save her? Nothing is certain, except that time is running out.
