Private Investigator Carlotta Carlyle is awakened by a late-night phone call telling her that Paolina is missing. Fourteen-year-old Paolina was paired with Carlotta by a mentoring program in Boston years ago, and she knows that Carolotta loves her like a daughter. As Carlotta combs the streets of Boston, then Miami, then Bogota in search of Paolina, she thins of another child; the baby she gave up for adoption when she was fifteen. Tense, emotional, and frightening, Heart of the World follows Carlotta as she searches for Paolina. When she's kidnapped by Paolina's notorious father, the outcome is that this very unlikely pair teams up to find the missing teenager. But first they must know -- was Paolina kidnapped, or did she run away?

Carlotta flies to Columbia to search for her little sister who appears to be kidnapped. The plot moves from the little sister, Paolina, back to Carlotta, who is also kidnapped. Strong male characters are policeman Mooney, boyfriend Sam, and Paolina's father Roldan, are all attracted to Carlotta. I got tired of women being locked in rooms or in trunks of cars, but the book covers a part of Columbia not described in the popular press.
