Linwood Barclay: Fear the Worst

Tim Blake was having an ordinary day when his daughter disappeared in Linwood Barclay's novel Fear the Worst. He made her breakfast and she went off to work. At least that's what he thought. When she didn't come home, Tim went looking for her. The hotel where she worked was the most logical place to start. What time did she leave? Did she mention if she was going anywhere? The trouble is, no one at the hotel had ever heard of her. She'd never worked there. Tim realized that finding his daughter was more than figuring out where she was, but who she was, as well. 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
