can't in good conscience tell you any more of the plot. Don't want to spoil it for you. It's a good one, well-thought out as well as well written. You'll like the characters. They are every day people who are caught up in something for which they didn't bargain.
he impossibly-named Skin has his work cut out for him, trying to find someone who doesn't wish to be found.
is a good story. And a good read.
