Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

The next nail-biting thriller from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Black-Eyed Susans.  

The discovery of a girl abandoned by the side of the road threatens to unearth the long-buried secrets of a Texas town's legendary cold case.  

Ten years ago Trumanell Branson disappeared, the only clue she left behind being a bloody handprint.   

Her pretty face still hangs like a watchful queen from the posters on the walls of the town's church, police station and high school. They all promise the same thing: we will find you. Meanwhile, her brother, Wyatt, lives as a pariah in the old family house, cleared of any involvement by the police but tried and sentenced in the court of public opinion and now in a sensational TV documentary about the crime.  

So when Wyatt finds a lost girl dumped in a field of dandelions, he believes she is a sign, someone to lead him to his sister and finally clear his name.   

Instead she leads him to young Police Officer Odette Tucker. She knows they must tread carefully - the town, still waiting for its missing girl to come home, is a tinderbox, and this new arrival might just set it alight.   

But Odette can't look away.   

For in this twisty, atmospheric psychological thriller, one lost girl may finally unearth the truth about another - and a town's dark heart.
