Today on the show, Jim and Abigail tackle author-submitted blurbs to rip them to shreds and build them back up, one line at a time. Here are this episode’s read-along selections:

A brutal international underworld. A lost girl. A PI determined to burn it all.
Former private investigator Adam Park is living a quiet life of surfing and travel. But when a troubled young woman and her manipulative boyfriend disappear, Adam’s former mentor cuts that retirement short.
It seems the pair stole something important from the wrong ruthless criminal – evidence that puts his business and reputation under threat.
Using cutting-edge technology, Adam tracks the pair through the Parisian underworld and into an international organized crime network that treats human life like a business commodity.
To survive ruthless traffickers, confront corrupt law enforcement, and return the girl safely, Adam must burn down his concepts of right and wrong, and draw upon violent facets of his psyche that he has long denied exist.
Because Adam is a good person.
The Dead and the Missing is a suspense filled, international mystery & crime thriller, a journey that launches a PI from the relative safety of the corporate world to the hard-boiled existence required to get the job done. At any cost to his soul.
