On a cold December day in 1963, thirteen-year-old Alison Carter vanishes from her isolated English country village. Newly-promoted inspector George Bennett finds no body, and more questions than answers. Decades later, he decides to talk to journalist Catherine Heathcote, but just prior to her book's publication, he refuses to cooperate further. The secret that Carter uncovers begs the question of who is responsible when the justice system fails.
