An abandoned Southwark warehouse burns next door to a women's shelter for victims of spousal abuse. Within it lies the charred corpse of a female body burned beyond all recognition. At the same time, workers at Guy's Hospital anxiously discuss the disappearance of a hospital administrator--a beautiful, emotionally fragile young woman who's vanished without a trace. Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid--lovers and former partners--have their own pressing concerns. But they must put aside private matters to investigate these disturbing cases. Yet neither Gemma nor Duncan realize how closely the cases are connected--or how important their resolutions will be for an abducted young child who is frightened, alone ... and in serious peril.
