    Day 28

    In the wake of a 28-day police review, Barclay has turned Leanne's disappearance into a murder investigation--and Kyle Betts is the prime suspect. Day 28 is also Matt's birthday, and he spends it mostly in the company of Sarah, much to Leanne's parents' chagrin. Monitored by liaison officer Simone Farnes and increasingly isolated due the suspicions raised against him, Matt is monitored by a marine buddy named Gary, who has agreed to be an informant. Matt and Farnes also make a disquieting discovery: a matter of days before Leanne disappeared, she bought a one-way flight to France, where her ex-husband, Daf Parry, now lives. Could Leanne have planned to go missing after all? As these questions surface, so does a body, raising fresh fears for Leanne's family.
