Grace's client, Henry Summerstone, has been blind for years. He has no idea of the name of the girl he's trying to trace, what she looks like, where she lives and works; in fact, he's not even sure that she's missing.

'Don't feed them on the beach, lass, you'll have all the kiddies round wanting to give them rock and candyfloss and heaven knows what.'
'Sorry.'
I put the carrot into the bag and left it lying on its side with a wink in Humphrey's direction.
With an expression of wide-eyed innocence, he lowered his head and started wandering casually across the sand, each shuffle of his hooves bringing the swinging muzzle a fraction closer to the abandoned bag.


The further adventures of ex-police officer Grace Smith, working as a private detective in the down-market seaside town of Seatoun.

This time Grace is working on two missing person cases. A blind man has asked her to find a jogger he often chatted to on the beach while walking his dog in the early mornings even though he doesn't know her name, address or what she looks like, while a rich and spoiled schoolgirl wants her to find the married man she started dating after he did some building work at her school.

I should like to dedicate this book
to JOHN and LORRAINE

to speak to me again!)
First words
Henry Summerstone wanted me to find a missing person.
There were a few drawbacks.
He did't know her name. He had absolutely no idea what she looked like. He didn't know where she lived or worked. In fact, when we got right down to it, he wasn't even certain she was actually missing. A real doddle of a job, in fact.
