Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James Thompson's incomparable Inspector Vaara is back in a new chilling Nordic mystery.

An Estonian woman begs Inspector Kari Vaara to find her daughter, Loviise, a young woman with Down syndrome who was promised work and a better life in Finland… and has since disappeared.

One more missing girl is a drop in the barrel for a police department that is understaffed and overburdened, but for Kari, the case is personal: its a chance for redemption, to help the victims his failed black-ops unit was intended to save, and to prove to his estranged wife, Kate, that hes still the man he once was.

His search will lead him from the glittering world of Helsinkis high-class clubs to the darkest circles of Finlands underground trade in trafficked women and straight into the path of Loviises captors, who may be some of the most untouchable people in the country.
