Midwinter. A child is found wandering in an ancient woodland, her hands covered in blood. But it is not her own.
Unwilling - or unable - to speak, the only person she seems to trust is the young officer who rescued her, Detective Sergeant Lucy Black.
Soon afterwards, DS Black finds herself moved from a high-profile case involving the kidnapping of another girl, a prominent businessman’s teenage daughter. As she tries to identify the unclaimed child, Black begins to realise that her case and the kidnapping may be linked by events from the grimmest days of the country’s recent history - events that also defined her own trouble childhood.

Powerful stuff! More please!
Intelligently written, engrossing.
I loved the character of Lucy Black and the richly written account of her dealing with her career and a difficult personal life.
I have also listened to 'Hurt', the other Lucy Black novel. I loved them both and really hope for more. The characters are well drawn. The stories pop along, without a wasted word and there is an excellent balance between Police procedure and interpersonal relationships. Caroline Lennon's narration was as excellent as ever.
