Synopsis:

When private investigator Carlotta Carlyle is wakened by a late-night phone call, she discovers that her "little sister," Paolina, the child with whom she was paired years ago by a local mentoring program, is missing. Carlotta combs the Boston streets looking for Paolina, torn between anger at the thoughtless teenage runaway and anxiety that something has really happened to her.

Paolina is more than a sister to Carlotta. She's the daughter she never had, or never owned up to having. She's the one constant in Carlotta's life, more reliable than Sam Gianelli, her mob boss lover, a man whose always unpredictable behavior has become increasingly mysterious.

Heart of the World, Linda Barnes's most intense, personal, and suspenseful Carlotta Carlyle novel yet, follows Carlotta's trail from New England to Miami to Bogotá and beyond as she probes the connection between Paolina's disappearance and the corresponding disappearance of the Colombian drug lord father Paolina has never met.

A breathless and shocking read, Heart of the World is perhaps Barnes's best.

From the Back Cover:

SHE'LL GO TO THE END OF THE EARTH
When private investigator Carlotta Carlyle learns that Paolina, the teenaged "little sister" she's been mentoring for years, has gone missing, she immediately starts combing the streets of Boston to find her. Paolina's indifferent mother, Marta, insists that the girl has run away...but as days pass without word, Carlotta suspects something sinister. Frantically searching for a lead, Carlotta uncovers clues pointing to Paolina's biological father, a notorious Colombian drug lord named Roldán.

TO FIND THE TRUTH....
Though Roldán is believed dead, Carlotta is convinced he's very much alive―and that he has abducted Paolina. Searching for answers will take Carlotta from sultry Miami to the Colombian jungle. With each shocking twist, Carlotta is drawn deeper into a labyrinth of conspiracies and corruption...and deeper into the most personal, most treacherous case of her career.

"This mystery has both timeless and contemporary appeal...a winner."
Boston Herald

"An emotionally cliff-hanging ending."
Publishers Weekly
