Summary (From the publisher):

On the day Lizzie came back from the dead, the police, her family and neighbors had already begun to search for her body. She had been missing for three days but could give no explanation as to where she had been. Soon after, a convicted pedophile is released back into the community, adding to the already heightened fears of parents in the Muriel Campden Estate where he lives. Then the child of a wealthy executive disappears, and not long after, a suspect in the kidnapping is found stabbed to death.

Chief Inspector Wexford is charged with solving the mysterious disappearances, protecting a pedophile, and catching a killer. As he searches for connections, he finds himself focusing on domestic violence. His daughter Sylvia, a social worker, has come to work in a refuge for battered women. Her own marriage is strained, although her husband has never raised a hand to her. Others in Kingsmarkham are not so fortunate. As Wexford moves closer to the truth, he confronts the discomfiting lesson that when it comes to the inner lives of families, justice is rarely as straightforward as the letter of the law.
