‘With fascinating characters and an intriguing plot, this is a real page turner’ Katie Fforde

Ten years ago, a missing person story causes a furore in Kent – and the national media. A beautiful young woman with a promising career as a singer walks home alone from a party and is never seen again. There is no evidence, forensic or otherwise, and no-one is ever arrested.

A decade later Libby Sarjeant is talked into inspecting a derelict hotel in her home village of Steeple Martin. The body of a young boy is discovered – but is it anything to do with the mysterious disappearance from over ten years ago?
