In Glasgow, a child goes missing, taken from the front garden of his home. The investigation leads the police to the doors of two young boys.
Paddy Meehan has just started work at a local newspaper where she dreams of becoming an investigative journalist. Although everyone around her believes the boys acted on their own, she is certain there is more to it and begins to ask awkward questions.
But Paddy's investigation has repercussions she never anticipated. Shunned by those closest to her, she finds herself dangerously alone.
And someone is trying to stop her discovering the truth.
The first novel in the addictive Paddy Meehan series, from award-winning author Denise Mina.
