Description

Heavy rain falls on Lafferton. As the rain water slowly drains away, a shallow grave - and a skeleton - are revealed.


It doesn't take long to identify the remains as those of missing teenager, Harriet Lowther, who was last seen sixteen years ago.

But a cold case isn't a priority: if Detective Inspector Simon Serrailler is to solve the case, he will have to do it alone.

Review quote

"A page-turner" * Guardian * "Hugely enjoyable" * Daily Mail * "Hill can't write a bad sentence and her characters are all completely convincing - no more so than her long-serving detective Simon Serrailler" -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror * "Her intellectual stance is engaging, her plot unpredictable and her detective a likeable presence" -- Hannah McGill * Scotland on Sunday * "Far more than a whodunit...written with a novelist's flair, in that the characters, however fleeting, are carefully drawn and believable" -- Leslie Geddes-Brown * Country Life *
