Sara Blaedel, author of the #1 international bestseller The Forgotten Girls--which was roundly praised as "gripping" with "uncompromising realism" (Washington Post) and "tautly suspenseful" (BookPage)--returns with the thrilling next book in her series featuring police investigator Louise Rick.

Following an extended leave, Louise Rick returns to work at the Special Search Agency, an elite unit of the National Police Department. She's assigned a case involving a fifteen-year-old who vanished a week earlier. When Louise realizes that the missing teenager is the son of a butcher from Hvalsoe, she seizes the opportunity to combine the search for the teen with her personal investigation of her boyfriend's long-ago death . . .
Louise's investigation takes her on a journey back through time. She reconnects with figures from her past, including Kim, the principal investigator at the Holbaek Police Department, her former in-laws, fanatic ancient religion believers, and her longtime close friend, journalist Camilla Lind. As she moves through the small town's cramped network of deadly connections, Louise unearths toxic truths left unspoken and dangerous secrets.

Maybe he’d left the area, but if not, the lights might flush him out. Or frighten him to death. 20 What the hell kind of place is this?” Nymand yelled after he’d stepped out of the car and peered down the rows of identical gravestones. “It’s a private graveyard from back when the old orphanage owned the forest,” Louise explained.

Not until Gamst spoke up. If he were telling the truth, Klaus hadn’t slipped the noose around his own neck. René Gamst was being held in Holbæk Jail. Shortly after his arrest, he had admitted to firing the two shots, and everyone knew he had shot to kill. The rapist had first broken into his home and assaulted his

and all the years she’d been saddled with guilt. About the reason she had treated Mik badly, and her anxiety about committing: Since Klaus’s death, she had entered relationships only halfheartedly. Louise knew this last confession hurt him, even though he tried to hide it. But she also sensed that he understood her better now. She described what happened after René’s revelation about Klaus: She had kicked the rifle out of his hands, twisted his arm around his back so violently that he had

She jumped up and followed Eik, who was already out the door. 45 I have a weekend bag with a change of clothing in the car. Take my jogging pants—you can tighten the waist.” Eik shut Charlie in the back of the car while Louise walked to the front steps.
