Waterstones Says

One of the most sophisticated thriller writers around produces another sizzling, thematically complex page-turner. Taking in gender equality and the civil rights movement, this 60s set mystery is an electrifying examination of institutional prejudice and the dispossessed whose deaths don’t even merit investigation.

A stunning, multi-voiced, period piece - tackling race, gender politics, and the volatility of mid '60s America - from the author of Sunburn

Cleo Sherwood disappeared eight months ago. Aside from her parents and the two sons she left behind, no one seems to have noticed. It isn't hard to understand why: it's 1964 and neither the police, the public nor the papers care much when Negro women go missing.

Maddie Schwartz - recently separated from her husband, working her first job as an assistant at the Baltimore Sun- wants one thing: a byline. When she hears about an unidentified body that's been pulled out of the fountain in Druid Hill Park, Maddie thinks she is about to uncover a story that will finally get her name in print. What she can't imagine is how much trouble she will cause by chasing a story that no-one wants her to tell.
