Publisher's Summary

Tom Thorne is on holiday with his girlfriend, DS Helen Weeks, when two girls are abducted in Helen's hometown. When a body is discovered and a man is arrested, Helen recognizes the suspect's wife as an old school friend and returns home for the first time in 25 years to lend her support. As his partner faces up to a past she has tried desperately to forget and a media storm engulfs the town, Thorne becomes convinced that despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, the police have got the wrong man. There is still an extremely clever killer on the loose and a missing girl who Thorne believes might still be alive.

Mediocre English crime and cop story

Nothing of note in this book. Not a page-turner ..the author has narrated well, and is easy to listen to.
