Attorney Sabre Orin Brown, affectionately known as SOBS by her co-workers, is on a mission to unite broken families and restore order in the family court judicial system. When young Bailey goes missing, a mystery evolves that highlights dangers even seasoned child advocate Sabre and her detective side-kick are hard pressed to solve. Not only are foster children disappearing, but the alarming news of the Devil’s House provides more reason for Sabre to speed up her attempts in locating the missing children.
With the assistance of frightened fourteen-year-old Bailey, Sabre is convinced that she can crack the case. But the questions keep adding up and time is running short. Is there really a cult involved in this case? What is the meaning of the phrase “I believe in the power of the oak?” Sabre and her posse of attorneys and detectives rush to investigate and solve this one of a kind mystery.
