Publisher's Summary

It was a tragic accident. Wasn't it? A private investigator returning to the hometown he fled years ago becomes entangled in the disappearance of two teenage girls in this stunning literary crime thriller.

Reid left the small town of Manson a decade ago, promising his former Chief of Police boss he'd never return. He made a new life in the city, became a PI and turned his back on his old life for good.

Now an insurance firm has offered him good money to look into a suspicious car crash, and he finds himself back in the place he grew up—home to his complicated family history, a scarring relationship breakdown and a very public career-ending incident.

As Reid's investigation unfolds, nothing is as it seems: rumours are swirling about the well-liked young woman who crashed the car, killing her professor husband, and there are whispers about a second local student who has just disappeared.

As Reid veers off course from the job he has been paid to do, will he find himself in the dangerous position of taking on the town again?

Delivers thrills and twists. You can see some coming but others not so. Likeable main characters. Hard to put down. Recommended.

He tino pai te pukapuka nei!

I had to restart this audio book a couple of times (kept getting interrupted) and the time lapse sequences made me a little confused initially, but once I got some peace and quiet I settled in and then disappeared into this story ... and stayed hooked right til the end. I am an avid fan of Joshua's. great readers too.
