Last night, eight-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from a family party.

No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything - or at least that's what they're saying. DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows the nine times out of ten, it's someone the victim knew. That means someone is lying...

And that Daisy's time is running out.
