Former cop Frank Elder is drawn out of retirement when his ex-wife asks him to look into the disappearance of her friend Jennie's sister Claire in Nottingham. Elder reluctantly returns to the city where his family disintegrated. Elder uncovers sexual secrets of Claire's that take Jennie by surprise. But when Claire is found dead at home-unmarked and carefully dressed-it is Elder who is surprised by the similarities to an old case. To solve this riddle, Elder will have to repartner with Detective Inspector Maureen Prior and delve into several suspects' traumatic histories. In a case in which neither memories, confessions, nor instincts can be trusted, Elder struggles with the weight of the past and Harvey delivers another psychologically trenchant page-turner.
