Synopsis

Black Sheep by C. J. Lyons

A young girl is taken. A father is silenced. The lies run deep. It's the one mystery Supervisory Special Agent Caitlyn Tierney has never solved: her father's suicide after he had to arrest his best friend for murder. It drove Caitlyn to become one of the FBI's best - and most unorthodox - agents. So when the man she holds responsible for her father's death pleads her assistance in finding his missing daughter, Caitlyn is horrified. But, as whispers of half-understood conversations from her childhood begin to come back to her, the agent inside Caitlyn must admit that something doesn't feel right. Her search brings her back to her North Carolina hometown, now vibrant with new money, old lies, and an unknown enemy who will do anything to keep Caitlyn from the learning the truth ...
