Publisher's Summary

Beneath the water the body sank rapidly. She would lie still and undisturbed for many years, but above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning.
When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip-off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child. The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news 26 years ago.
As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she must dig deeper and find out more about the fractured Collins family and the original detective, Amanda Baker - a woman plagued by her failure to find Jessica. Erika soon realizes this is going to be one of the most complex and demanding cases she has ever taken on.
Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone is keeping secrets. Someone who doesn't want this case solved. And they'll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

Strong Entry in a Consistent Series

This book started off a little jarring. It took a little while to realize some time had passed from the previous book and Erika was no longer at the same division with the same partners. Luckily many of the secondary characters from the first two books were eventually brought back in to participate in this book as well. That is good news because I think one of the strengths of the series is the multitude of flawed and/or interesting secondary characters. Several new characters were also introduced that I hope play a recurring role. I would like to know more about her sister and the new female chief.

The mystery was engaging as well. I admit I had only figured out who two/thirds of the bad guys were, so a good portion of the ending was surprising to me.

The narrator is not bad. She just adds nothing to the experience. Which is in some ways a good thing because she isn't overly theatrical. At the same time, I would never decide to listen to an audiobook just because she was the narrator, and there are some narrators that I will read anything they narrate.

Overall a good edition to the series and I will read the next installment.

Captivating, plenty of red herrings

The author has done it again with his third DCI Erika Foster book. I can't get enough. Highly recommendable. Jan Cramer's narration is excellent.
