Mandy Stevenson left home for college even as her family was being torn apart by the loss of her brother, an Indianapolis police officer. But now, four years later, it's time to return and face the grief and hardships she left behind. As summer fades, Mandy finds herself in a nightmare when her mother vanishes without a trace. Faced with her father's skepticism, Mandy turns to her godfather, head of the police department's Missing Person Unit, for help. The police investigation quickly uncovers her mother's secret, nefarious lifestyle-a lifestyle that may have cost her mother everything-including her life. Just as these secrets begin to unfold, Mandy's world is again turned upside down by the murder of a dear friend. She soon realizes that his murder may be connected to her mother's disappearance. How much grief from personal loss and duplicity can she bear? Will uncovering the most perfidious betrayal of all turn Mandy's life to bitterness-or end it?

Same as Product Description.About the Author:
M. E. May lives in the Far Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. The fourth of five children, she was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and lived in central Indiana for the majority of her life. It is no wonder she chose the capital city of Indiana as the setting for the Circle City Mystery Series.
She attended classes at Indiana University in Kokomo, Indiana, studying Social and Behavioral Sciences. Her interest in the psychology of humans sparked the curiosity to ask why they commit such heinous acts upon one another. Other interests in such areas as criminology and forensics have moved her to put her vast imagination to work writing fiction that is as accurate as possible. In doing so, she depicts societal struggles that pit those who understand humanity with those who are lost in a strange and dangerous world of their own making.
The first novel in the Circle City Mystery Series, Perfidy, won the 2013 Lovey Award for Best First Novel at the Love is Murder Conference in Chicago. Her second novel, Inconspicuous, was nominated for the 2014 Lovey Award for Best Suspense.
