Her best friend is dead and she needs to know why.

Aspiring journalist Bella is on work experience at a national newspaper when, out of the blue, she receives an anonymous letter promising her a big scoop if she travels down to Wiltshire.

All she finds is a government scientist spouting conspiracy theories in the pub. But then Bella's best friend from uni, Erin, is found dead in a nearby field, her body staged in the centre of a crop circle. Bella is devastated. Was she lured to Wiltshire for a reason after all?

When DI Silas Hart, head of Swindon CID, searches for evidence, Bella scours her own memory for clues. But it's full of blanks - the details of her university days with Erin keep slipping away. What secrets was Erin hiding? And, when she uncovers them, what will it mean for Bella?
