On a notorious high-rise estate in the London Borough of Hackney, a van is driving erratically. The driver is pulled over and questioned. A woman on the street after a long night of drinking never makes it home. A suspect, an arrest, a confession--a case closed? Five years earlier, a young girl disappeared on a busy London street. The case was never closed. Now there's a confession to this murder, and to yet another. Is it too good to be true? Detective Chief Inspector Anna Travis is pulled into the fray by her mentor and friend Detective Chief Superintendent James Langton and isn't so sure that they have their man--then the suspect changes his story.
