AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Haunted by her failures, Detective Isabelle O'Connell is recalled to duty by DCI Alec Goddard to investigate the abduction of yet another child from her home town. They have only days to find the girl alive, with few clues, a town full of suspects, and a vast wilderness to search. It soon becomes a game of cat and mouse, with Bella firmly in the killer's sights.

'For Bella, this case is already personal; for Alec, his best intentions to keep it purely professional soon dissolve. He couldn't be more involved if the missing child were his own, and his anguish over Bella's safety moves beyond the concern for a colleague.

'Their mutual attraction leaves them both vulnerable to their private nightmares - nightmares the killer ruthlessly exploits.' (Author's abstract)
