Luke Mullen, 16-year-old son of a former, high-ranking police officer, has disappeared, presumed kidnapped. While no-one quite dares to voice the fear that he could also be presumed dead, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne is brought in to beef up the squad dedicated to locating the missing boy.
The first thing the team looks for is anyone with a grudge against Luke's father, a man who'd put a lot of tough villains away in his time. A list quickly emerges, but Thorne discovers that one name has been omitted - the most obvious suspect. Is this a simple oversight? Or is it something more telling?
Aware that he does not have the luxury of time, Thorne searches desperately for connections and leads, but learns that secrets are as easily buried as bodies, and that assumptions are the enemy of truth.

I enjoyed listening
Mark Billingham writes another great novel
Very well written
Wondering what had happened to Luke when he disappeared from the first kidnappers. I had to keep listening..
Paul reads very well and the voices are very good.
The novel is cleverly written and has lots of twists and turns. The storyline certainly kept my attention. It was very hard to predict what would happen next.
