In a hospital bed, small-time private detective Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium. But before the accident that landed him there, he d been hired to find Rose Janko, the estranged daughter of a traveling Gypsy family, who went missing seven years earlier.

Half Romany himself, Ray is well aware that he s been chosen more for his blood than for his investigative skills. Still, he s surprised by the intense hostility he encounters from the Jankos, who haven t had an easy past. Touched by tragedy, they re either cursed or hiding a terrible secret the discovery of which Ray can t help suspecting is connected to Rose s disappearance

Seamlessly toggling between Ray s past and present, and the perspective of the missing woman s young nephew JJ, Stef Penney builds a gripping page-turner that doesn t let go until its shocking end.
