Wilde and Emily have built a new life in an exciting new place but, when their little girl disappears from her bed in the night, that life is suddenly and irredeemably torn apart.
They set about a desperate search for Cara while at the same time trying to hold on to the balloon strings of their every day. They must confront an unseen ugliness in their new home, hidden away from the eyes of strangers, while skirting the landmines of scam artists and conmen who lurk at every turn. The police and the press to whom they turn for help seem only to block their way and they must fight a numbing helplessness as events rush ever further out of their control. All the while, they have to find a way to stay together in the face of forces that would pull them apart.
Because together is their best chance of finding Cara.
And finding Cara is all there really is.
