Meanwhile, a photograph emailed from Paris could bring Fennimore closer to discovering the fate of Suzie, his own daughter, now missing for six years. He seeks help from his old friend, DCI Kate Simms, recently returned from the US. But Kate is soon blocked from the investigation... A mother and child's lives hang in the balance as Fennimore and Simms try to break through police bureaucracy to identify their abductor.

Cop/forensics duo Kate Simms and Nick Fennimore head to the US Midwest in this sequel to the highly acclaimed thriller Everyone Lies. A call for help from a sheriff's deputy takes forensics expert Nick Fennimore to Oklahoma: a mother is dead, her child gone. DCI Kate Simms, on assignment with St Louis PD, finds a pattern in her cold cases. The two investigations converge, uncovering serial murders across two continents, but nine-year-old Red, adventuring in Oklahoma's backwoods, has no clue that he and his mom are in the killer's sights. And soon the race is on to catch a serial killer and save the boy.
DI Kate Simms is on the fast track to nowhere. Five years ago she helped a colleague when she shouldn't have. She's been clawing her way back from a demotion ever since. Professor Nick Fennimore is a failed genetics student, successful gambler, betting agent, crime scene officer, chemistry graduate, toxicology specialist and one-time scientific advisor to the National Crime Faculty. He is the best there is, but ever since his wife and daughter disappeared he's been hiding away in Scotland, working as a forensics lecturer.
In Manchester, drug addicts are turning up dead and Simms' superior is only too pleased to hand the problem to her. Then a celebrity dies and the media gets interested. Another overdose victim shows up, but this time the woman has been systematically beaten and all identifying features removed. The evidence doesn't add up; Simms' superiors seem to be obstructing her investigation; and the one person she can't afford to associate with is the one man who can help: Fennimore.
Während eines Sabbaticals in St. Louis, Missouri, stößt DCI Kate Simms nicht nur überraschend auf ihren unliebsamen Ex- Mentor, Professor Nick Fennimore, sondern auch auf die Spur eines Serienkillers, der es auf junge Mütter und deren Kinder abgesehen hat. Im Nachbarstaat Oklahoma wird zeitgleich die Leiche einer Frau aus einem See geborgen – ihr Kind: verschwunden. Als das gemeinsame Muster deutlich wird, beginnt für Simms und Fennimore die fieberhafte Jagd nach dem Killer. Ein Killer, der gebrochene Frauen wählt, der den Blick seiner Opfer nicht erträgt – und dessen Mission noch längst nicht beendet ist ...
