"A gripping thriller with a cunning plot twist" by the award-winning author of the Dalziel and Pascoe mysteries (Mystery Scene Magazine).

Best known for his Dalziel and Pascoe novels, which were adapted into a hit BBC series, Reginald Hill proves himself to be a "master of... cerebral puzzle mysteries" in his stand-alone thrillers as well -- now available as ebooks (The New York Times).

When four-year-old Noll is abducted from an Essex kindergarten, his grieving mother, Jane Maguire, sets off alarms for Det. Inspector Dog Cicero. She's a liar, has a quick-temper, and a dodgy reputation for taking out her frustrations on her little angel. Then Jane makes a startling confession: She murdered Noll and threw his body in the Thames. For the first time since Dog met her, he's sure of one thing: Whatever Jane was guilty of, she hadn't killed her son. The question now is, who is she protecting with this grim deception? And if Noll isn't dead, where is he? Even Dog isn't prepared for the answers as it leads down a serpentine trail for the truth -- and into the heart of a desperate mother with more to lose than she can imagine.
