In her second captivating outing, Robin Ballantyne finds herself drawn into the sinister depths of a chilling, controversial conspiracy...After a tumultuous year, Robin Ballantyne has happily returned to making documentaries for the Corporation. Her latest project: to research the stories of people who have disappeared...But when she begins asking questions about missing Corporation camerawoman Melanie Trent, Robin's work comes to the attention of one of her shadowy superiors, who attempts to warn her off. Why are the Corporation so desperate to keep this case under wraps?

Whilst Robin insists on hunting out the truth, her relationship with DCI Tom Finney is jeopardised by the return of his ex, her eccentric mother disappears to America to 'find herself' and her criminal father takes root where he's not wanted. With so much going on and the clock ticking, can Robin stay in control and out of danger?...
