Somebody’s Daughter

David Bell. Berkley, $26 (432p) ISBN 978-0-399-58446-6
Michael Frazier, the hero of this riveting thriller from Bell (Bring Her Home), has a nearly ideal life in his hometown of Cottonsville, Ky., until the evening his frantic ex-wife, Erica, appears at his door and pleads for his help in finding her missing 10-year-old daughter, Felicity, who she claims is also Michael’s daughter. Uncertain whether she’s his child but hopeful she might be, Michael follows Erica into the night in the hope of saving Felicity. Also searching for Felicity are Jake Little, Erica’s former lover and possibly Felicity’s father, who’s not afraid to engage in kidnapping and assault to achieve his ends, and Davenport County police detectives Erin Giffin and Jim Twitchell, who are desperately trying to sort out the false leads from the real clues to the girl’s disappearance. Michael’s long night will challenge his understanding of the past and the people he thought he knew. Bell turns an ordinary life into a tense roller-coaster ride filled with unexpected twists and turns. Author tour. Agent: Laney Katz Becker, Lippincott, Massie, McQuilkin Literary. (July)
