CORNWALL, ENGLAND. In the summer of love, 1967, two children witness a murder. One, a seven-year-old boy, views it from fifty yards – the other, a young Irish girl, from miles away.

LONDON, 2006. With retirement looming, DCI John Kennedy reopens the only case he never solved: the disappearance of a young nurse, Kathy, twenty-three years earlier. A Crimewatch cold-case reconstruction follows, tracing Kathy’s last known movements. A new witness emerges, and Kennedy, finding himself on the trail of a serial killer, unwittingly sparks a sequence of events which lead him into ever-increasing danger.
As the investigation unfolds, it becomes apparent that the murderer is no ordinary adversary. Resourceful and cunning, it seems only the original witnesses from 1967 can stop him.
But they have yet to meet.

A gripping and compelling story, this epic tale is a must for readers who love non-linear plots in their reading. With many twists and turns, this crime, mystery and suspense thriller veers through many other genres, including psychological and paranormal, a blend which is sure to keep you guessing until the end!

“There are so many different words I could use to describe this book, unique, compelling, addictive, poignant, eerie, moving, and I could still go on. But if I had to pick just one word to do this book justice, the choice would be simple. Outstanding.” UK Reviews

“This is not your typical mystery novel, but then again it's not your normal paranormal nor thriller novel either. This book is really three genre mixed into one deliciously tantalizing book. While this book is long and requires the reader to pay close attention so as not to get lost, it is well worth the time and effort.” USA Reviews

“GREAT read. At times I had to remind myself I wasn't reading Koontz or Barclay. Twists and turns keep you interested through every sentence. Intricate weaving of so many different characters and story lines.” Canadian Reviews

“Initially I thought that this novel was going to be a dud but 10 pages in and I was hooked, it just got better and better until I couldn't put it down, now I have to search for his other books...” Australian Reviews
