April 6, 2017 DESCRIPTION
A haunted house, a broken family and a body that has never
been found. Stella and Jack must reawaken the secrets of the
past in order to solve the mysteries of the present.
January, 1987. In the depths of winter, only joggers and dog
walkers brave the Thames towpath after dark. Helen Honeysett,
a young newlywed, sets off for an evening run from her riverside
cottage. Only her dog returns.
Twenty-nine years later, her husband has asked Stella Darnell, a
private detective, and her side-kick Jack Harmon, to find out what
happened all those years ago.
But when the five households on that desolate stretch of towpath
refuse to give up their secrets, Stella and Jack find themselves
hunting a killer whose trail has long gone cold…
