When a promising local artist disappears, the victim's brother begs Detective Tara Thorpe to take the case. It seems there's no evidence of foul play . . . he simply disappeared without a trace.
Tara agrees to do some digging . . . never mind that her unorthodox approach to policing has got a few of her colleagues' backs up. Amongst them is her former supervisor Detective Patrick Wilkins . . . he's had enough of Tara calling the shots and will do anything to knock her down. She must be careful.
At least she has an ally in their boss, Detective Garstin Blake. He'll always back her hunches. If anything, they work together too well . . . at least, that's the rumor around the station these days.
When a body of a young woman is found frozen near the fens, Tara's evidence suddenly becomes key to solving a high-profile murder. Is their missing artist still a victim . . . or in fact a clever murderer with a deadly plan?
