Publisher's Summary

Small-time private investigator Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium in a hospital bed. But before the accident that landed him there, he had promised to find Rose Janko. Rose was married to the charismatic son of a travelling gypsy family, Ivo Janko. When Ray starts to investigate her disappearance he's surprised that her family are so hostile towards him. The Jankos have not had an easy past. They are a clan touched by tragedy - either they are cursed, or they are hiding a terrible secret. Could it be that Rose's discovery of that secret led to her disappearance all those years ago? Soon Ray wishes that he'd never asked the question. In a novel that is totally different from Stef's extraordinary debut The Tenderness of Wolves, she shows herself once more to be a matchless storyteller.

wonderful story, great characters

This was the best I've heard for a while, not for a moment did I stop believing in the characters, or get tired of the mystery. Great reading too.

Of you only download one book, make it this one!

The story is gripping, dealing sensitively and thoughtfully with the Gypsy
Community. It's told in the first person by two different characters. Like them, all the people who inhabit the story are masterfully drawn. The denoument is quite unexpected, though one can spot the clues in hindsight.
The reading by Daniel Stevens enhances the quality of the narrative. His voices are perfectly judged and performed, the pacing and delivery are perfect.
I was sorry when I came to the end.
