Teenager Alexandra Tozer was murdered on her family's farm. Five years later, her sister Helen will return.
As soon as DS Breen tracks down the original investigating sergeant, the man goes missing. And so does Helen.
The only connection between the suspects is the Kenya Emergency - a nightmare that Englishmen prefer to forget.
But others remember. Every bloody detail. And when another woman is taken, Breen fears that history - in all its shame and horror - is coming back to haunt them.
