Gone...But Not Goodbye

The first book in the Nathan Miccoli Series.
Lillian Brannon wakes up on Valentine's Day in an exact replica of her bedroom but the only item that is authentic is her dog, Laude.  She is held captive in her kidnapper's basement apartment, summoned upstairs once a week for a chaste dinner.  But will his kindness last, and more importantly, why isn’t anyone looking for her?  
Nathan, a NYPD officer, is intrigued by Lillian’s disappearance- how can a young woman be gone for two weeks before a Missing Person Report is filed?  Local police believe Lillian has voluntarily abandoned a life she didn’t like.  Lillian’s best friend convinces Nathan the authorities are wrong.  With no jurisdiction, no resources, and no witnesses, he is compelled by the pictures of Lillian with her sweet smile and sparkling green eyes to obsessively take up the case.  Armed with Lillian’s keys and personal information, he spends hours, then days in her home trying to find clues that will lead him to her.
