A hard-hitting DI Sarah Quinn police procedural - 'Olivia Kent is lying. Olivia Kent is crying. Olivia Kent is dying. I could make it quicker. Put her out of her misery. But I won't.' The anonymous letter sent to the chief superintendent would appear to be a piece of malicious nonsense. But schoolteacher Olivia Kent hasn't been seen for six days - and as the race to find her becomes increasingly desperate, DI Sarah Quinn is forced to turn to her old adversary, the unscrupulous journalist Caroline King - who just so happens to be the missing woman's best friend; for help.
