Then Hoff, her father just disappeared. Caroline’s dying Aunt, who is like a second mother to her, requests that Caroline find her brother Hoff.

The more she searches for answers, the bigger the danger. There are twists and turns, and I really never expected the way the story ended. What a surprise!!!
