From the Back Cover

Missing adj. 1. not present; absent or lost. 2. not able to be traced and not known to be dead. go missing to become lost or disappear Time is running out for James Dent. On the trail of missing singer Billy K, his team has exhausted every lead. The investigation has cost Dent his marriage, his home and possibly his job. All he has left is a copy of 'Show Me the Sky' - the book Billy was reading when he vanished. With only the clothes on his back, Dent himself disappears. He believes he can solve this case alone. He can have little idea where this journey will take him. From the love letter of a motorcyclist strandd in central Australia, to the back streets and brothels of Mombasa, Dent begins to wonder if he is trailing a man, a ghost or himself. Mystery and adventure, historical voyage and journey of discovery - Show Me the Sky is an unforgettable ride. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
