For John Gage, coming home from eighteen months of captivity should have marked the end of a life of anguish and abuse. It should have marked the end of his friends' grief and worry over his fate. But sometimes what should be the end is really only the beginning.

In this sequel to Lost & Found, Johnny learns the road to recovery is not easy. Memories cannot be turned off just because we want them to be. As he sets out to reclaim the life that was taken from him, he soon learns that it's hard to let go of the past, no matter how much you want to take hold of the future.

And Johnny learns that for some, being left behind caused far greater pain than any of the actions of the madman.
