When Andrew’s girlfriend, Katy, hears a violent argument between her neighbours, she can’t sleep. The next day, she goes round to check on them…and disappears. Andrew is frantic and the police, led by DS Freeman, are more than a bit confused. There is blood but no body and Andrew’s story just doesn’t stack up.
Then there’s the added problem that the neighbours have gone missing too – and one of them is a member of Freeman’s own team – Dawn Lawton, a great twist that made me sit up and take notice.
Along with her boss, DI Gardner, Freeman needs to find Lawton, find Katy and find out the truth about just what happened.
