‘OH MY GOD! Just let me a take a moment while I catch my breath! I LOVED IT! WHAT A BOOK! WHAT AN AUTHOR! WHAT A READ!’ Emma the Little Bookworm, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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 has been 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 when she vanished twenty-six years ago.

As Erika tries to piece together the new evidence with the old, she discovers a family harbouring secrets, a detective plagued by her failure to find Jessica, and the mysterious death of a man living by the quarry.

Is the suspect someone close to home? Because someone doesn’t want this case solved. And they’ll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth…

A pulse-pounding, page-turning crime thriller from the multi-million-copy, global no.1 bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, JD Kirk and Karin Slaughter.

Can be read as a standalone
