A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Assured classic British crime which feels like anything but a debut novel. In small town Derbyshire, two eight year old schoolgirls are kidnapped by a stranger in a car. One of them, Rachel, escapes albeit with no memories of the event but the other is never found. Thirty years later, following the suicide of the lost girl's mother on the anniversary of her disappearance, the case is revived and Rachel, now a genealogist and two police investigators reopen the case as another murder is uncovered, which appears linked to the events of way back. Atmospheric and wintery, and plotted with laser-like precision, a novel that never puts a foot wrong and, in sober fashion, offers all the thrills of a rigorous detection, together with psychological insights into loss and memory. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
