A high school girl disappears from a tough Boston neighborhood, a sadly too common occurrence with gang violence and drugs in the surrounding blocks. Her family wants answers, but the trail has grown cold over many months despite the efforts of the police department.

Frankie Elkin is a woman with a host of issues, including being a recovering alcoholic whose only skills are bartending and finding missing people. She inserts herself into the investigation and uncovers truths unsettling to both law enforcement and the family. The more she digs, the more mysteries are unearthed.

Frankie has found many people, but never alive. Can this be the first time she brings a missing person home alive?
