Publisher's Synopsis

Fans of Lee Child and Harlan Coben will love this gripping, moody and heart-stoppingly tense crime thriller from Hollywood screenwriter David Levien.

"Heart-stopping suspense and a heartbreaking story" - LEE CHILD

"Relentless suspense that will not let you out of its grasp, and a cast of characters who are so utterly real you'll forget you're reading fiction. David Levien's novel is moody, riveting, and special" - Harlan Coben
"Gripping . . . Levien's skill is to chart the emotional plight of the parents within the twists and turns of a fast-moving and complex plot" - MIRROR
"This story gripped me right from the start" -- ***** Reader review
"Incredible!! Couldn't put it down..." -- ***** Reader review


Twelve-year-old Jamie Gabriel
gets on his bike before dawn to deliver newspapers in his suburban neighbourhood. Somewhere en route, he vanishes without a trace.

Fourteen months later, still with no sign of Jamie and having lost all faith in the police, his parents Paul and Carol are on the verge of abandoning hope. Then they meet private investigator Frank Behr, a tough, reclusive ex-cop.

Abandoned by his former colleagues, separated from his wife and haunted by his own terrible past, Behr doesn't make it a practice to take on hopeless cases, but the desperate couple's plea for help awakens a personal pain he can't ignore . . .
