"It's been seven years since Maria Buscombe disappeared, leaving a cryptic note for her husband and daughter. Seven years of living in silence. Now the news comes home that Maria has been brutally murdered.
For RCMP Staff Sergeant Karl Alberg, the case pulls him away from thoughts of early retirement with the love of his life, Cassandra Mitchell. But Ahlberg knows he won't be able to rest until he pieces together the puzzle of Maria's past. Why had she left her family so abruptly? what were the secret circumstances of her childhood adoption? And who was stalking the troubled woman, and why?" - Seal jacket notes.
Compelling plot and characters - excellent. A great series. ( )
