There's the lost.
There's the missing.
And there's the taken.


She asked me once if we had any secrets, and I shook my head. 
'No secrets between us,' she said. 
'No,' I answered. 'Never ever.'


In a Durham hotel at dawn, celebrated preacher Tristan Snow is murdered as he prays. None of the other guests - not even his daughter, his wife, or her sister - saw or heard anything.

But then again, they all had a motive for murder.

Detective Inspector Erica Martin is confronted by secrets and lies, lost in a case where nothing is what it seems.

With no answers, DI Martin is consumed by questions: Is anyone in this family innocent? When the victim might have been a monster - is there such a thing as justice? And does anyone deserve to die?

Praise for Alice Clark-Platts:

'Had me on the edge of my sun lounger. Excellent plotting and a genuinely unguessable resolution to the mystery'
