Simon & Schuster UK, Jun 11, 2020 - Fiction - 400 pages
A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John Sandford

When a wealthy widow returns to her luxurious home in an exclusive Minneapolis suburb to find blood everywhere and her daughter gone, she instantly suspects the involvement of the weird Goth crowd her daughter was always hanging around with. Then, with no sign of the widow's daughter, dead or alive, a second Goth is found slashed to death.

It's only when a third turns up dead that Lucas Davenport is reluctantly dragged into the case. But for all Davenport's expertise, the clues don't seem to add up. And then there's the young Goth who keeps appearing and disappearing. Who is she? Where does she come from - and, more importantly, where does she vanish to? Davenport suspects that there's something else going on here. Something very, very bad . . .
