A man and his wife are dead. His adored and long lost love, also: but they share a common thread. A girl; their heir. She is gone, vanished from their lives. The bearer of a guilty secret from the past. Money and faded letters that speak of unspent passion and wasted opportunity.
She must be found.
Two men, powerful and respected lawyers, are charged with the search. They join forces, but what are their motives and who do they really act for?
A hunted and frightened girl. A girl who has buried the painful past and rebuilt a life. Now everything will change. The ghosts were not dead, merely sleeping, waiting. They are astir again and their time has come.
