5th of September, 1992

Fifteen-year-old Norma Jean Judd disappeared from her home on Erebus Street, Kings Lynn, never to be seen again. Exactly eighteen years later, another tragedy is about to strike the Judd family......

5th of September, 2010

Bryan Judd, Norma Jean's twin, is found dead in a hospital incinerator and when his charred remains are examined, the murder squad confirm that his death was no accident. Could his murder somehow be linked to his sister's disappearance all those years ago?

For DI Peter Shaw and DS George Valentine, this case is their most bewildering yet. As they begin their investigation into Bryan's life and his questionable associates, they uncover a secret world of criminal activity in Bryan's neighbourhood and at the hospital where he died. Can Shaw and Valentine solve Bryan's murder before any more lives are violently snatched away? And will they ever learn the truth about what happened to Norma Jean?
