A missing child. A mother destroyed. A life stolen
When Abby Henshaw’s car is run off the road and she is brutally attacked by two strangers, her first thought is for the safety of her baby daughter, Beth, who is on the backseat. But what follows is a mother’s worst nightmare: Beth is gone.
As DI Michael Gardner begins to investigate Abby and her family, he discovers that their relationships are built on secrets and betrayals. Under pressure to find the missing child, he finds himself struggling to stay emotionally removed from the case and from Abby herself. Beth is not found and the case turns cold.
Years later another child goes missing and Gardner is drawn back into contact with Abby who is convinced that her daughter is still alive. Together they set in motion a series of events that culminate in a brutal confrontation with the truth.
