The remains are identified as those of missing teenager, Harriet Lowther, last seen 16 years ago

Reviews

"A page-turner"
Guardian||"Hugely enjoyable"
Daily Mail||"Hill can't write a bad sentence and her characters are all completely convincing - no more so than her long-serving detective Simon Serrailler"
Daily Mirror||"Her intellectual stance is engaging, her plot unpredictable and her detective a likeable presence"
Scotland on Sunday||"Far more than a whodunit...written with a novelist's flair, in that the characters, however fleeting, are carefully drawn and believable"
