The second gripping thriller in the Kate Daniels series, in which detective Kate Daniels must solve the death of one girl as another--who bears a striking resemblance to the victim--goes missing.
When a young girl is found dead at the base of Hadrian's Wall in Northern England, it's not long before detective Kate Daniels realizes her death was no ordinary homicide. She was thrown from a great height and was probably alive when she hit the ground.
Then a local businessman reports his daughter missing. Her description fits the dead girl exactly. Has Daniels found the identity of her victim—or is a killer playing a sickening game?
As the investigative team delves deeper into the case, half-truths are told, secrets exposed. And while Daniels makes her way through a mountain of obstacles, time is running out for one terrified girl.
Mari Hannah, the award-winning author of three novels featuring detective Kate Daniels, was born in London and moved north as a child.

She now lives in Northumberland with her partner, an ex-murder detective. She was the winner of the 2010 Northern Writers' Award and the 2013 Polari First Book Prize and longlisted for the CWA 2014 Dagger in the Library Award. Recently the Kate Daniels series was optioned for television in the UK.
