Publisher's Summary

Little Marcus Fallbrook was kidnapped in 1976, and when he never returned home, his grieving family assumed the worst. Thirty years later, teenage singing star Leah Wakefield disappears and DI Wesley Peterson has reason to suspect that the same kidnapper is responsible. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson's gruesome task of exhuming the dead from a local churchyard yields a mystery of its own when a coffin is found to contain one corpse too many: a corpse that may be linked to a strange religious sect dating back to Regency times. As Wesley's investigations pursue the line of recovered memories, he discovers that the past can be a very dangerous place indeed.

Grew on me as tale went on

I found this somewhat hard to get into and, like other reviewers I failed to understand why we had the various time lines (they didn't to me actually seem to dovetail in with each other - unless I'd dozed off at the appropriate point). Having said that I did gradually get drawn into this book and did 'sort of' enjoy - certainly enough that I shall download another book in this series or perhaps one from the same author in a different series.
