Margot Lewis is a teacher at an exclusive high school in the English university town of Cambridge. In her spare time, she writes an advice column, "Dear Amy", for the local newspaper. When one of Margot's students, 15-year-old Katie, disappears, the school and the town fear the worst. And then Margot gets a "Dear Amy" letter unlike any of the ones she's received before. It's a desperate plea for rescue from a girl who says she is being held captive and in terrible danger - a girl called Bethan Avery, who was abducted from the local area 20 years ago and never found.
Die Lehrerin Margot Lewis ist extrem beunruhigt, als ein 15-jähriges Mädchen aus ihrer Klasse verschwindet. Sie ist überzeugt, dass Katie entführt wurde, auch wenn die Polizei dafür noch keinerlei Beweise hat. Dann erhält Margot, die nebenbei die Ratgeber-Kolumne "Dear Amy" führt, einen unheimlichen Brief: Darin fleht ein Mädchen um Hilfe, das vor 15 Jahren spurlos verschwand. Ein Graphologe bestätigt die Echtheit des Briefes - und dass er nagelneu ist.
Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters - but none like the one she's just received: 'Dear Amy, I don't know where I am. I've been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I'm afraid he'll kill me. Please help me soon, Bethan Avery.' Bethan Avery has been missing for nearly two decades. This is surely some cruel hoax. But as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public.
