About the Book

'Seriously this is a must read. I loved it!' MARTINA COLE

'Utterly superb ... pure reading pleasure.' SOPHIE HANNAH

One of VAL MCDERMID'S New Blood choices for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, Harrogate 2017

What really happened to Sarah Cook?

A beautiful blonde teenager, Sarah Cook disappeared fifteen years ago, the same night her parents were brutally murdered in their suburban Ohio home. Her boyfriend Brad Stockton - black and from the wrong side of the tracks - was convicted of the murders and sits on death row, though he always maintained his innocence. As his execution nears, his devoted sister, insisting she has spotted Sarah at a local gas station, hires PI Roxane Weary to look at this cold case.

Reeling from the recent death of her cop father, Roxane is drawn to the story of Sarah's disappearance, especially when she suspects a link between it and one of her father’s unsolved murder cases. Despite her self-destructive tendencies, Roxane starts to hope that she can save Brad’s life and her own.
