Captivated (2019)

A new story introducing Colter Shaw.

Colter Shaw is a career “reward-seeker,” making his living traveling the country and locating missing persons, collecting reward money in return. So it is not unusual when a wealthy entrepreneur hires him to track down his wife, an enigmatic artist who vanished one month before. As Shaw begins to investigate, he suspects that she was fleeing a bad marriage, and he follows her trail to an artists’ retreat in Indiana. The case takes one surprising turn after another, and soon Shaw begins to wonder if this mysterious woman is more of a captor than a captive.

This short story is available in eBook and audiobook formats only.

Catch Colter Shaw in these novels: The Never Game, The Goodbye Man, and The Final Twist, and in the short stories “Forgotten,” and “The Second Hostage.”
