´He was her child. The only one she´d ever have. It would kill her to learn that he was missing.´
Alex arrives home from holiday to find that her ten-year-old son Daniel has disappeared.
It´s the first case together for Northumbria CID officers David Stone and Frankie Oliver.
Stone has returned to his roots with fifteen years´ experience in the Met, whereas Oliver is local, a third generation copper with a lot to prove, and a secret that´s holding her back.
But as the investigation unfolds, they realise the family´s betrayal goes deeper than anyone suspected. This isn´t just a missing persons case. Stone and Oliver are hunting a killer.
