(From the publisher):
Investigator Jake Cardigan is back, this time hired to look into the disappearance of beautiful heiress Alicia Bower. As the daughter of the world's wealthiest robotics industrialist, Alicia has lived an exciting, eventful life, and her family is not concerned. They think this is just another impetuous departure with some handsome young man. But her current boyfriend, who believes she loves him and has changed her ways, thinks Alicia is in danger, and he turns to Jake Cardigan for help. Jake has his own problems. The murder of Beth, the woman he loved (in The Vengeance), has left him lonely and bitter. Still, Jake's son Dan and his trusted sidekick Sid Gomez persuade him to take on the case. His beloved Beth is beyond his help, but Alicia Bower may still be alive and in need of rescue. And even if Jake had tended to discount her boyfriend's emotional plea, the attempts that begin immediately on his own life are enough to convince him that something of deadly importance is going on.
