The lowborn Fallons haven't come to the Hewitt household for a handout, they've come for help - the kind of help only Nell Sweeney can give. Their wayward daughter, Bridget, is missing, and they don't know whether she's gone off with her brute of a boyfriend or if she's met a bad end. Now, as Nell traces Bridget's path through the dangerous backalley parts of town, she finds herself caught in a scandalous scheme of lies and money, and what she knows may just be the death of her...
