The fourth in the D.I. Jack Dylan series, set in Yorkshire and written by the husband and wife team who are the storyline consultants to TV's Happy Valley and Scott & Bailey.
When hairdresser Kayleigh Harwood is reported missing by her mother in the worst blizzards Harrowfield has experienced in years, D.I. Jack Dylan and his team are called in. Kayleigh's car is found abandoned with her mobile phone inside but there is no sign of her. At the edge of the local quarry on the desolate Yorkshire moors, items of clothing are found. They are identified as belonging to the hairdresser, and an intense police search of the area begins.
The investigation turns to a loner living close to where Kayleigh's car was discovered, and it soon becomes apparent to the investigators that the loner is hiding a bizarre secret.
To Dylan's disbelief Divisional Commander Hugo-Watkins assumes that skeletal remains found in a lay-by are connected to the young woman's disappearance, and without seeking Dylan's advice, calls out the entire Major Incident Team. Refusing to be distracted, Dylan and his team continue to work round the clock in the hope of finding Kayleigh alive.
Meanwhile Dylan's wife, Jen, is distracted and distant. Unbeknown to him her ex fiancé is in their midst, and stalking her.
