What do you do when your child disappears?
Kathy Gilleran is a twenty-year veteran police officer from New York. Her son, Aeryn Gillern, is a researcher working at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization in Vienna and a former Mr. Gay Austria. On October 31st, 2007, Kathy receives a call from the U.N. with distressing news: Aeryn has disappeared. In Vienna, she learns that the police have no interest in an investigation. Detectives tell Kathy that Aeryn had been at the Kaiserbründl – an exclusive men’s sauna in downtown Vienna – on the evening of October 29th when he suffered an extreme and sudden emotional breakdown, fled the sauna wearing only a towel, ran naked through the city streets, and jumped into the Danube Canal. Though her son’s disappearance has been ruled a suicide, Kathy suspects there is more to the story. And there is.
