An old farm, a deserted landscape, a dark secret from times past with fatal consequences for the present…
In the tranquil northern seaside town of Scarborough, a student is found cruelly murdered. For months, the investigators are in the dark - until they are faced with a copycat crime. The investigation continues as they struggle to establish a connection between the two victims. Ambitious detective Valerie Almond clings to the all too obvious - a rift within the family of the second victim - but there is far more to the case than it first appears. Soon Valerie is led toward a dark secret inextricably linked to the evacuation of children to Scarborough during World War II. Horrified at her last-minute discovery, Valerie realizes that she may be too late to save the next victim.
