A reissue of the first in the Detective's Daughter series, in which a woman reconnects with her dead father by solving the murder case that obsessed him in life

It was the murder that shocked the nation. Thirty years ago Kate Rokesmith went walking by the river with her young son. She never came home. For three decades her case file has lain, unsolved, in the corner of an attic—until Stella Darnell, daughter of Detective Chief Superintendent Darnell, starts to clear out her father's house after his death.


"A haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot." —Sunday Times
