A photographer is abducted from her rural studio. DI Angus Henderson finds several witnesses, but no motive. He’s convinced the answer lies in Cindy Longhurst’s busy lifestyle: her previous boyfriends, her environmental campaigning or in the photographs she took. Problem is, her back catalogue runs into millions.
The discovery of her body on a beach near Brighton elevates the kidnapping to a murder, but the crime scene offers few clues. Henderson reluctantly instructs the team to search through Cindy’s photographs. Looking for what? He doesn’t know.
In time, they discover a secret that could unlock this case – but it’s dirtier and more dangerous than he ever imagined.
