McMillan Palgrave
Though Brodie Farrell runs a business called "Looking for Something?" she tries to avoid missing people cases. But she can't refuse when her friend in the police asks her to find the long-lost aunt of two girls after their mother is murdered and their father disappears. When an intruder breaks into the girls' home, Brodie must act quickly to save them from a dangerous, elusive murderer.

Blackwell North Amer
Brodie Farrell's detective agency, Looking for Something? specializes in tracking down weird and wonderful things for clients who have exhausted the usual options. But despite her resolve to refuse all commissions to look for people, Brodie finds it hard to ignore a referral from her trusted friend, Superintendent Jack Deacon.
The tragic details of the case help convince her that she should take it on. Two young girls have been left alone after their mother has been brutally stabbed to death. There is little doubt of the guilt of their missing father, who had discovered evidence of his wife's latest affair with a young farmhand. Brodie's job is to find the murdered wife's estranged sister and persuade her to care for her nieces, Juanita and Emerald. In the meantime, Brodie's friend Daniel Hood agrees to act as a tutor for the girls.
As Jack Deacon tracks the missing father and Brodie sets about finding the aunt, Daniel uses his skills as a schoolteacher - and survivor of an equally horrific situation - to befriend the two sisters and help them deal with their grief. But when the autopsy report reveals some unexpected results and an intruder breaks into the family home, Brodie realizes that tracking a missing aunt is the least of her worries. As the pieces start to fall into place, Brodie must act quickly to save not only the girls' lives, but her own as well.
