Publisher's Summary

In the Peak District village of Scarsdale, 13-year-old girls didn’t just run away. So when Alison Carter vanished in the winter of '63, everyone knew it was a murder.

Catherine Heathcote remembers the case well - a child herself when Alison vanished. Now a journalist, she persuades DI George Bennett to speak of the hunt for Alison. But when a fresh lead emerges, Bennett tries to stop the story - plunging Catherine into a world of buried secrets and revelations.

By 'eck it were good

The author is a legend and this is more evidence of their greatness. The narrator has done a spectacular job of bringing the story to life ....and the story, well, I think you should give it a listen.

A Place of Execution

Another wonderful book by Val McDermid enhanced by the narration of Paddy Glynn. This book has all the hallmarks of excellence we expect from Val McDermid but the twists and turns give no clue as to the bone shaking finale. Highly recommended and why isn’t it a movie????
