(From the publisher):
In Brixton, south London, a husband and wife are found tied up and imprisoned in their house. Badly dehydrated after suffering beatings and days without food or water, they are in bad shape. The husband is clinging to life. But worse is to come. Their young son is missing.
Detective Inspector Jack Caffery of AMIT is called in to investigate the abduction of the little boy. When the child's body is found Caffery knows from the nature of the attack that his considerable investigative skills will be sorely tested as he attempts to unravel the motive and sequence of events. As Jack digs deeper, as he discovers that a tragedy in his own past is indirectly connected to the murder, and as he attempts to hold his own life together in the face of ever more disturbing revelations about both the past and the present, the real nightmares begin.
