The chilling and darkly original novel from New York Times #1 bestselling author Candice Fox. The third in her award-winning Bennett and Archer series, set in Australia.

'If you love great thrillers, you'll love Candice Fox' Lee Child

Meanwhile Frank’s new girlfriend Imogen is determined to solve the disappearance of the two young Tanner children over twenty years earlier. But the trail is leading to Eden’s door.

And, as Frank knows all too well, asking too many questions about Eden Archer can get you buried as deep as her past …
