'Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah.' Val McDermid

'Mari Hannah writes with a sharp eye and a dark heart.' Peter James

'Thrilling, exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat.' Angela Marsons

*****************

'He was her child. The only one she'd ever have. It would kill her to learn that he was missing.'

Alex arrives home from holiday to find that her ten-year-old son Daniel has disappeared.

It's the first case together for Northumbria CID officers David Stone and Frankie Oliver.

Stone has returned to his roots with fifteen years' experience in the Met, whereas Oliver is local, a third generation copper with a lot to prove, and a secret that's holding her back.

But as the investigation unfolds, they realise the family's betrayal goes deeper than anyone suspected. This isn't just a missing persons case. Stone and Oliver are hunting a killer.

*****************
