Another from the 2015 Neddies Best First category read over the weekend.

From the Blurb:

When a battered wife disappears from a women's crisis shelter after her husband's murder, guilt-driven journo Lexie Reed, has to push the already besieged DSS Wil Saddington to help as she uncovers human trafficking of Melbourne's most vulnerable.

If her husband hadn't been murdered - would anyone have noticed she was missing?
