A three-year-old girl is snatched from a beach. Nobody heard a sound. Nobody saw a thing.
Rosie Gilmour's much-needed holiday is cut short when the abduction story breaks and she's sent to cover it. Her instincts tell her something's wrong: such a crime must surely have witnesses, and the girl's mother's story doesn't add up.
With a child's life at stake, Rosie must dig deeper into the seedy depths of the area, making dangerous enemies.
As she closes in on the truth, she realises the penalty for missing this particular deadline could be her own demise.
"The book is as perfectly paced and neatly plotted as any Ian Rankin novel, with a wide appeal for both male and female readers" (Daily Mail).
