“A cold coming they had of it, at this time of year;
just, the worst time of year, to take a journey, and a specially long journey, in. The ways deep, the weather sharp, the days short, the sun farthest off in solstitio brumali, the very dead of winter.”
Lancelot Andrewes, 1555-1626
The South of England is held in the icy grip of winter, blizzards are forecast and roads are virtually impassible. Yet in the middle of the night, seventeen year old Isabelle Mathias vanishes. And she’s no ordinary girl; the gifted, disturbed daughter of a dead rock musician and artist mother recently remarried to Bill Saxby, whose press empire includes the UK’s most-read newspaper, The Daily Enquirer. As winter closes in on the town and the search unfolds, Chief Superintendent Andrew Fenwick is brought in to help and the dark secrets of Issie’s life come stumbling into the light.
