When she left Oxford, Sam Falconer thought she had put the ghosts of her past behind her. But, while working in London as a P.I., she is summoned home by her brother to investigate the disappearance of a young woman-and confront the trauma she's tried so hard to forget. The closer she gets to Oxford, the more uneasy she becomes. Then, out of the blue, Sam receives a letter from a man who's been dead for 28 years-her father.|
As Sam copes with emotional chaos and investigates her case, she finds that every trail leads back to the university. But academia is stingy with its secrets, and its pursuit of truth is limited by a self-protective instinct that could turn lethal at any moment.
