(From the publisher):
News that an innocent young girl like Charity Pritchard is missing will pierce the armour of policemen far more hard-bitten than Inspector Thanet. And his concern deepens when the first thought of her family - strict religious fundamentalists - is to leave the matter in God's hands.
Of course no detective worth his salt will put much faith in outward appearances. And he is hardly likely to pay much heed to first impressions. But it will be a good while after Inspector Thanet finds Charity's poor broken body before he realises just how wrong his preconceptions can be...
