Sometimes the past just wont stay buried.
DC Gary Goodhew is on a pub crawl when he smells smoke. He rushes to the scene and finds a raging house fire, too far gone to stop. The blaze leaves two corpses, but a young boy—who was also inside—is now missing.
As the investigation deepens, it becomes clear that the boys mother, Kimberley, knows much more than she is letting on. With the clock ticking on a childs life, Goodhew begins to sift through the ruins of Kimberleys past—and uncovers an unsettling picture of deceit, murder, and accelerating danger. Fans of Deborah Crombie and Elizabeth George will relish this gripping page-turner.
