Overview
A nineteen-year-old aspiring model has disappeared in Paris. Her father, Bart Denum, turns to his old friend Hugo Marston for help. Marston, the security chief at the American Embassy, makes some inquiries and quickly realizes something is amiss: Bart's daughter was not a model, but rather a dancer at a seedy strip club. And she headed to Barcelona with some guy she met at the club.
With his friend and former CIA agent, Tom Green, Marston heads for Barcelona. The two sleuths identify the man last seen with the girl, break into his house, and encounter a shocking scene: Bart Denum, standing over the dead and battered body of their mysterious stranger. Though Bart protests his innocence, under the damning circumstances, Spanish authorities arrest him for murder.
The two American investigators are faced with their biggest challenge ever: find the real killer, prove Bart's innocence, and locate his missing daughter--without getting killed along the way.

Near the start of Pryor’s intricately-plotted fifth Hugh Marston novel (after 2014’s The Button Man), Hugh, the security chief at the American embassy in Paris, is supposed to meet Amy Dreiss, the 19-year-old stepdaughter of an old friend, Bart Denum, at a restaurant for breakfast, but she fails to show. Amy came to Paris hoping for a modeling career, but Hugh later discovers that the missing teen was working at a strip club instead. Hugh and sidekick Tom Green follow Amy’s trail to Barcelona, where she traveled with a young man, Rubén Casteñada, who offered her a job there. When Hugh and Tom check out Casteñada’s Barcelona address, they find his body on the apartment floor—and a blood-drenched Bart, who protests his innocence. Extraneous characters and digressions on their habits and history lend a certain aura of coziness to this gory tale. Agent: Ann Collette, Rees Literary Agency. (June)
