More About You Will Never Find Me by Robert Wilson
 
 
 
Overview
Amy Boxer, the precocious daughter of London kidnap consultant Charles Boxer and Detective Inspector Mercy Danquah, has drifted from melancholy and frustration to drastic action: she's leaving home. But Amy can't just walk out, and goads the talents of her parents, with a challenge: YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME.
Amy's destination: Madrid. Here, in the strobe-lights of bars and crowded dance clubs, she's anonymous and untraceable. Except to a volatile, unpredictable leader in the Madrid drug trade, the man known only as El Osito.
Charles Boxer will use his very specific set of skills to retrace Amy's quickly vanishing steps, while DI Danquah takes on her own case in London: a young boy, Sasha Bobkov, has gone missing. Is the disappearance connected to Sasha's father, a retired agent of the Russian secret service, who is working to discover who poisoned his former fellow agent, Alexander Tereshchenko.
As Danquah begins her search for Sasha, a body is found in Madrid. Amy's father may be the next target.

In Gold Dagger Award–winner Wilson’s less than successful sequel to 2013’s Capital Punishment, 17-year-old Amy Boxer leaves a note for her parents at her local London police station announcing that she’s bored with her life and leaving home (“you will never find me”). Ironically, both her parents, who are estranged from each other, are missing-persons professionals: Det. Insp. Mercy Danquah is with a special kidnap unit, and Charles Boxer is a freelance kidnap consultant. Mercy and Boxer regard her message as a dare, but are frantic to find her safe and sound. Improbably, with Amy’s whereabouts still a mystery, Mercy is allowed back at work and assigned to a sensitive case involving the abducted son of a former member of the FSB, who was investigating a friend’s poisoning with polonium. Wilson throws a couple of curveballs into the plot, but some feel gimmicky, and the ending will strike some readers as a cheat. Agent: Anthony Sheil, Aitken Alexander Associates (U.K.). (Apr.)
