You fall asleep in the playground.
Your son is gone.
10 years later, will you finally get the truth?

'A terrific thriller from one of our finest crime writers at the top of his game.' Peter James

Ten years ago, the disappearance of firearms police officer Jonah Colley's young son almost destroyed him.

A plea for help from an old friend leads Jonah to Slaughter Quay, and the discovery of four bodies. Attacked and left for dead, he is the only survivor.

Under suspicion himself, he uncovers a network of secrets and lies about the people he thought he knew - forcing him to question what really happened all those years ago...
