A woman who loves visiting country houses faces a dreadful end in the chilling seventeenth part of Peter James’s bestselling series featuring Detective Superintendent Roy Grace.
Is this Roy Grace's most challenging case yet? A mystery that is leaving him totally confounded for the first time in his career.
Most Sundays, Niall and Eden Paternoster like to go for a drive and visit country houses. She likes to look at them, he likes to dream that one day...
However, most weeks they also end up bickering about something or other. This particular Sunday he wants to get back to catch the start of the French Grand Prix but she insists they stop somewhere to buy cat litter. Reluctantly, he pulls into the car park of a large supermarket and waits while she dashes in.
He waits. And waits. But Eden doesn't come back out, she's gone. When he gets home she's not there either, and none of their friends or family have heard from her.
A few days later Niall is arrested on suspicion of her murder despite vigorously protesting his innocence. But as Roy Grace is called in to investigate the disappearance of Eden Paternoster, it soon transpires that nothing is as it seems...
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace investigates the case of a missing woman in Brighton in the seventeenth novel in Peter James's bestselling series.

'Peter James has penetrated the inner workings of police procedures, and the inner thoughts and attitudes of real detectives, as no English crime writer before him. His hero, Roy Grace, may not be the most lively cop, nor the most damaged by drink, weight or misery, but he's one of the most believable.' - The Times
'James just gets better and better and deserves the success he has achieved with this first-class series.' - Independent on Sunday
'Meticulous research gives his prose great authenticity... James manages to add enough surprises and drama that by the end you're rooting for the police and really don't know if they will finally get their men.' - Sunday Express
