A WALL STREET JOURNAL AND GUARDIAN THRILLER OF THE YEAR
A respected detective. A lonely woman.
Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw loves her job but longs for a personal life. Distant from her own family, she wants a husband and children of her own.
A missing girl who seemed to have it all.
After yet another disastrous Internet date, Manon turns on her police radio and receives an alert that sends her to a puzzling crime scene. Postgrad student Edith Hind is the well-connected daughter of the physician to the Royal Family—and she has disappeared.
Few clues. And the clock is ticking . . .
A smattering of blood. No forced entry. The first seventy-two hours are crucial. Edith’s boyfriend, best friend and parents are pulled into the investigation. Secrets begin to emerge about the girl’s tangled love life and erratic behaviour leading up to her disappearance. And the shocking discovery has consequences not just for Edith’s family but for Manon as well.
