Rookie reporter Jason Wade gets involved with the disappearance of a young woman. He endangers his job and his life. Jason is quite an everyman-character, making it easy to relate to him. His growth as a character is almost as important as the thrilling plot. The forensic details are great, the plot pulse-pounding and the villains scary. The only thing that dissapointed me a bit was the lack of surprise when the bad guys were revealed.
