The plan is simple: kidnap the daughter of Senate candidate Richard McClaine, take the money, and run. Nobody gets hurt, the kid goes home alive. That’s what twenty-two-year-old car thief Kelsey Money thought she was getting into. She chalked it up to another hair-brained idea from her boyfriend Matt and his drug-fueled brother. But when she discovers the part she wasn’t told, the plan takes a deadly turn – six-year-old Holly isn’t going home alive.
Elizabeth McClaine can't even tell the police what her daughter was wearing when she disappeared. Soon after Holly was born with Down Syndrome and a cleft palate, she was placed in the care of a nanny while her mother battled postpartum depression. Now, Elizabeth is left virtually helpless. But when she learns the detective on the case has already failed one kidnapped child, she vows not to fail hers. The clock is ticking. Both women have twenty-four hours to find Holly because in twenty-five, she’ll be dead.
Catherine lives with her disabled adult daughter and a dog that thinks he owns the house. She's sold international satellite capacity, owned a communications store, and worked in IT recruitment. When Catherine's not writing, she's wrestling with technology, dog wrangling, or trying to maintain control of the yard.
The Candidate's Daughter is her first published work.
