Publisher's Summary

If it's the last thing she ever does, Iris will find Sophie's killer and make her pay.
On a cold December night in Cornwall, nanny Karen Peterson disappeared with three-year-old Sophie Flynn. The next day, the child's body was found on a riverbank in Penhale Wood.
A year later, Sophie's mother, Iris Flynn, appears on the doorstep of investigating officer Rob McIntyre, determined to make him reopen her daughter's case. McIntyre has his own personal demons, but Iris hijacks his life in order to find the woman she thinks is responsible for Sophie's death. Following the slimmest of leads, they are soon confronting ghosts from the past and a chameleon-like killer who will do anything to stay hidden.


What the Critics Say

"This strong, character-driven novel is suspenseful with unexpected twists. Thomas skillfully uses the emotional pain of the main characters to advance the story. Fans of Catriona McPherson's standalones may appreciate this stirring book." (Library Journal)
"Thomas is a talented writer and knows what ingredients it takes to create a great mystery." (RT Book Reviews)

Unexpected Twists!

I enjoy British police novels and thought this one was well done. What I did not like about the book was the murder of a child. I thought the author did very well with the character development and liked that they were realistic. I loved all of the unexpected twists this book had. Ana Clements did a very good performance with this book and I was able to distinguish when certain characters were speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator.
