Little Marcus Fallbrook was kidnapped in 1976, and when he never returned home, his grieving family assumed the worst. Thirty years later, teenage singing star Leah Wakefield disappears and DI Wesley Peterson has reason to suspect that the same kidnapper is responsible. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson's gruesome task of exhuming the dead from a local churchyard yields a mystery of its own when a coffin is found to contain one corpse too many: a corpse that may be linked to a strange religious sect dating back to Regency times. As Wesley's investigations pursue the line of recovered memories, he discovers that the past can be a very dangerous place indeed.
