Summary
Fife, Scotland, 1985: Heiress Catriona Maclennan Grant and her baby son are kidnapped. The ransom payoff goes horribly wrong and Grant is killed. Her son disappears without a trace--until 2008, when a tourist in Tuscany stumbles upon dramatic new evidence that reopens the investigation. Fife, 1984: At the height of the politically charged national miners' strike, Mick Prentice abandons his family to join the strikebreakers down south. Labeled a blackleg scab, he's as good as dead as far as his friends and relatives care. Twenty-three years later, a young woman walks into a police station to report Mick Prentice missing. Detective Karen Pirie, head of the Cold Case Review Team, wants to know why it's taken so long for anyone to notice. For Pirie, already immersed in the Prentice investigation, a second foray into a 1980s crime gone cold--the Grant kidnapping--offers an opportunity to make her mark. But it's sure to come at an extremely high price.--From publisher's description
