The second riveting crime novel in the Karen Pirie series, from No.1 Sunday Times bestseller Val McDermid.

`A superb mystery' The Times

Twenty-five years ago, a woman and her baby son were kidnapped and held to ransom. Catriona Grant ended up dead and little Adam's fate has remained a mystery ever since.

When a new clue is discovered in a deserted Tuscan villa - along with grisly evidence of a recent murder - cold case expert DI Karen Pirie is assigned to follow the trail.

She's already working a case from the same year. During the Miners' Strike of 1984, pit worker Mick Prentice vanished. Where did he really go? And is there a link to the Grant mystery?

The truth is stranger - and far darker - than fiction.

“A good read”

Not as great as the Mermaid Singing and the other Tony Hill ones but a good read nevertheless. Bit put off by the flashback technique at first, but worked in the end.
Yes, you could guess who did what as you came near... More
