en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – April 2009
The superb new psychological thriller from 'Queen of Crime' Val McDermid fuses her trademark plot twists and characterization with one of the most important events in recent UK history - the 1984 Miners' Strike. Twenty-five years ago, the daughter of Scotland's richest man and her baby son were kidnapped and held to ransom. But Catriona Grant ended up dead and little Adam's fate is still unknown. Where did he really go? And is there a link to the Grant mystery? The truth is stranger - and far darker - than fiction.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Past and present intertwine in this brilliant exploration of loyalty and greed from bestselling mistress of suspense Val McDermid.
Fife, Scotland, 1984. Mick Prentice abandons his family at the height of a politically charged national miners' strike to join the strikebreakers down south. Despised and disowned by friends and relatives, he is not reported missing until twenty-three years later.
Fife, Scotland, 1985. Kidnapped heiress Catriona Maclennan Grant is killed and her baby son vanishes when the ransom payoff goes horribly wrong. In 2008, a tourist in Tuscany stumbles upon dramatic new evidence that reopens the investigation.
Already immersed in the Prentice affair, Detective Karen Pirie, newly appointed head of the Cold Case Review Team, wants to make her mark with this second unsolved 1980s mystery. But two decades' worth of secrets are leading Pirie into a dark domain of violence and betrayal—a place darker than any she has previously entered.
