Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After tragic events tear him away from his parents, he is forced to live with his estranged Uncle Myron and switch high schools.


A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For awhile, it seems like Mickey’s train-wreck of a life is finally improving—until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury – and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

  • Mickey Bolitar

    Like his Uncle Myron, Mickey is quick-witted, clever, and at 6’4”, dominates on the basketball court. But this year, he’s got little time for sports. His family’s a mess, he’s already managed to make enemies at his new high school, and when his girlfriend, Ashley, goes missing, he may be the only one to save her. But he’ll need help from some unexpected allies.

  • Ema

    Ema is a self-proclaimed “goth” girl, rocking shoe-polish black hair and tattoos. Used to being on her own, she’s resistant to Mickey’s initial attempts at friendship. But she soon becomes a loyal friend and an indispensible partner in Mickey’s search for Ashley.

  • Spoon

    Full of random facts and (sometimes) helpful information, Spoon (a nickname given to him by Mickey) might actually be just the sidekick Mickey needs. Not only is he eager to help, but he has a knack for getting into locked places and cracking codes at just the right moment.

  • Rachel

    Beautiful Rachel Caldwell can make a boy tongue-tied by just looking in his direction, but Mickey soon learns that she is more than a pretty face. She was willing to put her own safety on the line to help Mickey and his friends find Ashley. But now Rachel is caught up in the dangerous cross fires of a murder mystery involving her own family.
