Then there's the case of a maybe-kidnapped six-year-old. She's tempted to write off the homeless man who walks into her police station with nothing more than a crazy story and a kid's high-top sneaker, but then a child actually does go missing.

It turns out his name is Josh Hollister and no one has seen him. Now Kate must investigate his disappearanceandtransform a station full of resentful police officers into a strong, cohesive unit. When Josh's mother disappears, too, Kate is determined to find a way to work with her team. Will they put the pieces of the puzzle together in time to save Josh?
