On a freezing December night in 1963, the worst kind of fear strikes the secluded Northumberland hamlet of Scardale. A 13-year-old girl has vanished without a trace. Against all their instincts, the tight-knit resident...展开s must ask the outside world for help.
More than 40 years later, the dramatic events surrounding the girl’s disappearance and the hunt for her killer resurface when a high-flying TV journalist makes a documentary about the case. But what she finds will shatter the past – and the lives of everyone involved.
