I wanted to start this book out with a tense moment and let you know what the relationship between Gary and Stacy was in case you hadn't read the first book. Stacy went missing and Gary blames himself, as do the police, but he has no idea who took her. He sees a man push her through the door, but can't see what his face looks like. Stacy gives one helpless look at Gary and then she's gone. I wanted to portray the helpless ness that they both experienced during this time.
Gary glanced away for a moment as he was trying to decide what to say, who to thank, and what he would do next, and when he looked back toward Stacy, the chair was empty. He looked around to see where she had gone, but she was nowhere to be found. A man was leaving the room through a back door and he had Stacy by the arm, taking her with him. She looked at Gary and bit her lower lip, just before the man pushed her through the door.
