Jeannie Symonds is a force to be reckoned with - an eccentric, award-winning publisher, spending lockdown with her husband in a house near Kesterly-on-Sea. She seems to have it all: a high-flying career, a happy marriage, a niece she adores.
And then one day, she vanishes. Cara Jakes is a new trainee investigator - young, intelligent and eager to prove herself. When she teams up with detective Andee Lawrence to look into the disappearance, she is determined to find out what has really happened to Jeannie.
Cara begins to question the residents of this close-knit community, sure that someone has a secret to hide. But how can she separate the truth from the lies?
