- We can order this from the publisher
In a small northern town, girls are disappearing.
You won't see it in the papers and the police aren't taking any notice, but the clues are there if you know where to look.
Becca sees that something is wrong, but she's been labelled 'difficult' thanks to her troubled past. So when a girl is so savagely beaten she can't be identified, and Becca claims she knows who she is, no one will believe her.
With the police refusing to listen, Becca digs for evidence that will prove what she is saying. But her search for justice will put herself and those closest to her in danger - and once she finds the truth, will anyone even listen?
