Synopsis

An hour and a half after three-year-old Danielle Gaston is kidnapped from the Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, a new web site pops up on the Wold Wide Web--featuring Danielle Gaston. She's isolated in a room with no food and only water to drink. This live-action web page is available to all net users around the world and is soon rebroadcast on CNN and other networks. Since Danielle is the only child of a popular country & western singer and a senator, her case is a high profile one--and likely to end in heartbreak. Who better to take the fall for a bad outcome than Polly Kelly?

"I get to hang around with cops, go ask people questions about their jobs that I would be too chicken to ask without a reason, and walk around Chicago looking for good murder locales. Best of all, I get to read mystery and suspense novels and call it keeping up with the field."She was the 1999-2000 president of Mystery Writers of America.
