Six-year-old Ben Snape was separated from his father on the platform of Finsbury Park tube station on the afternoon of Saturday, February 22. He hasn't been seen since. On the ground floor of 64 Clarke Street lives Max, a man with a shadowy past and an increasingly troubled present, which his noisy upstairs neighbours are doing nothing to soothe. They are aspiring journalist Sophie and her boyfriend Dash, who makes a living selling sub-standard speakers from the back of a white van. But how will Dash's somewhat less than respectable occupation lead him to get inexorably tangled up in Max's mysterious plans? And what connects them both to Ben's disappearance?
