Blood on the Rocks by Priscilla Masters

Joanna is very pregnant but she's still a cop.  She's insulted when they put her in charge of finding an old missing man with dementia.  She thinks it's just busy work but it's more complicated than that...

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 1st.

It seems the man has disappeared.  She questions the help trying to figure out how he got out the locked doors.  After all, the doors were all locked on the inside in the morning.  As an aside she finds he was upset because his teddy bear was missing.  Did he go out to look for it and get lost?  Everyone is looking for him but no one is finding him.  Then she wonders if he was abducted.  While she's worrying about the dementia patient, there is someone planning her demise...

A recent prisoner who was released is planning how to get even.  She's going to use the man as bait.

The man's bear was valuable and it was stolen for the money they could get out of it.  The lost man has been hid but they are afraid of the woman prisoner and agree to give him to her.

Will Joanna fall for the trap that's being set?  I'm afraid so.
