Janet Florin has been gone for almost a week. Her husband, Mark, reported her missing when she failed to collect their two young children from school and a family friend, Trisha Marlowe, desperate for news of Janet, hires Sal to track her down. What could possibly have led Janet to abandon everything she holds dear? Ramin's brother, Berfan, is missing, too. A failed asylum seeker, likely to be returned to Iran, has he disappeared to escape deportation? His brother says not. And when Sal hears that Berfan has been seen in Manchester, the chances of finding him look promising. Sal has already traced Bob Swithinbank's birth-mother, though whether Sandra Patefield will ever agree to meet Bob is another matter...Meanwhile, as the summer kicks into gear, the temperature is notched up on the domestic front when Sal's housemate, Ray, wants to share much more than just the chores. Sal Kilkenny is back in this eagerly awaited new novel about separation, secrets and the search for truth.
