Moriah Dru / Richard Lake

by Gerrie Ferris Finger

Moriah Dru, former Atlanta police officer and founder of Child Trace, specializes in missing child cases. Kidnappers, murderers, human traffickers, and other assorted low-lives ghost across her radar and into her sights. Aided by Lieutenant Richard Lake, her sometimes-sidekick and full-time boyfriend, Dru approaches each case with bulldog tenacity. Her goal: to reunite each child with a concerned parent — but things aren't always so simple in society's dark corners.
