Danny Cumberland has been on parole for eighteen months. He’s staying out of trouble, trying to run a business, and trying to fit back into a world that left him behind twelve years ago. In his mind, Pierce Brosnan was still James Bond.

Fifteen years ago, a week-long fling produced a daughter. Three years ago, she was kidnapped and murdered. As he struggles to trust people again and piece together the life of a child he never knew, Danny begins to find problems with the investigation and has another DNA test performed. The body in the casket isn’t his daughter. Could Danielle be alive? DNA is never wrong. Is it?

Saving her means violating his parole and lying to people he’s come to care about. How far will an ex-con go to rescue a daughter he never knew who isn’t even supposed to be alive?

About the Author


When you get right down to it, Bob Mueller writes about emotions. He finds them in his own experiences as a divorced father, and a family member of a sex abuse survivor, and from the people he meets. He puts himself in someone else’s shoes, and teases out their feelings. Blending that with bits and pieces of history and life experience, he crafts a story that might have been inspired by a song, or a news article. But it’s about emotions in the end. Born in north Texas and raised in southeastern Ohio, Bob is a member of Tulsa NightWriters and Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, a father of eight, and a pastor’s husband. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading (thrillers, historical fiction and non-fiction, and police procedurals), genealogy, and shooting.
