A suspenseful psychological crime novel from one of Germany's No.1 bestselling authors. In the northern seaside town of Scarborough, a student is found cruelly murdered.
For months, the investigators are in the dark, until they are faced with a copy-cat crime.
The investigation continues apace, yet they are still struggling to establish a connection between the two victims.
Ambitious detective Valerie Almond clings to the all too obvious: a rift within the family of the second victim.
But there is far more to the case than first appears and Valerie is led towards a dark secret, inextricably linked to the evacuation of children to Scarborough during World War II. Horrified at her last-minute discovery, Valerie realises that she may be too late for action...
