There is something different about Finn O’Sullivan. The people of Bone Gap know him as Roadkill or Moonface, because somehow he is just not like any of them. So when the young and beautiful Polish girl named Roza goes missing, no one expects that Finn is the one who knows what has happened. Unfortunately, there are gaps in his story, for Finn cannot remember the man who kidnapped Roza. It seems impossible to solve the mystery without this knowledge.
Finn is obsessed with finding Roza. It’s not just that he knows what has happened. It’s that her disappearance has affected his relationship with his brother. Sean loves Roza, yet she is just one in a long line of people who have left Sean. His father died, his mother left the boys to be with another man. He thinks Roza has run away from him and Finn is lying about her kidnapping. After all, if Roza really was kidnapped as Finn claims, why can’t he reveal the man who did it?
However, Finn is not lying and it takes Priscilla “Petey” Willis to detect the truth about Finn’s inability to find Roza’s kidnapper. Once he understands, he knows he must rescue Roza. No one else in Bone Gap is the right person to face the challenge. With his own unique skills, Finn will track the kidnapper while facing his own personal demons.
This is a unique and magical love story, forcing the reader to confront their perceptions of what love truly means.
