An abandoned Southwark warehouse burns next door to a women's shelter for victims of spousal abuse. Within it lies the charred corpse of a female body burned beyond all recognition. At the same time, workers at Guy's Hospital anxiously discuss the disappearance of a hospital administrator -- a beautiful, emotionally fragile young woman who's vanished without a trace.

And in an old, dark, rambling London house, nine-year-old
Harriet's awful fears won't be silenced -- as she worries about her
feuding parents, her schoolwork . . . and the strange woman who
is her only companion in this scary, unfamiliar place.

Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid -- lovers and former partners -- have their own pressing concerns. But they must put aside private matters to investigate these disturbing cases. Yet neither Gemma nor Duncan realize how closely the cases are connected -- or how important their resolutions will be for an abducted young child who is frightened, alone . . . and in serious peril.

Two separate stories merge, one of a suspicious fire with a charred body and the other of a kidnapped young girl. Good character development of Kincaid and James. The custody battle of Kit is finally resolved or is it? There may be a few too many characters as it sometimes was difficult to keep track of all of them.The several twists and plot lines made this a very good and thoroughly enjoyable read.

One of the better in this series from a mystery standpoint. Lots of seemingly unrelated things going on that all come together at the end. Not too much to advance the overall story arc with the characters. I can't believe, no matter what was going on, that Duncan would miss Kit's hearing! Oh well, conflict pushes the story along.
