Rhiannon Reece is a seventeen-year-old girl at her last year at school. She lives with her grandparents after her mother was killed when she just one. Her father took it badly and vanished to Australia.
She leaves the house in the morning but doesn’t turn up for school. No one has seen her, no one knows where she is, or where she could have gone, and this is so unlike Rhiannon.
By teatime, the worried grandparents call the police and Inspector Walter Darriteau and his team are looking at the case.
It’s early days, but Walter has bad vibes about things. He’s hoping he’s wrong. He isn’t often. The story of the Death Broker has begun. The hunt for Rhiannon has just started.
