A teenage girl wanders out of the woods.

Detective Jonah Sheens quickly discovers that Keely and her sister, Nina, disappeared from a children's home a week ago. Now, Keely is here - but Nina's still missing.

Keely knows where her sister is - but before she tells, she wants Jonah's full attention . . .

Is she killer, witness, or victim?

And will Jonah find out what Keely's hiding, in time to save Nina?

  • Addictive, fast-paced and so expertly plotted that when I finished I had to read the beginning again, in awe at the twists. I'm a huge fan of the Sheens series but this is my favourite yet. I loved it!
