About to close a major deal, Ed Lister is called to the phone. It’s the news every parent dreads. His art-student daughter Sophie has been found brutally murdered in Florence.
In an instant, Ed’s charmed world – successful business, beautiful wife, lavish lifestyle – begins to unravel.
Frustrated with the official police inquiry, Ed vows to find Sophie’s killer. When his quest leads to a mysterious website, Ed hires a young cyber-sleuth to track down the web-master, Ward – the most companionably lethal psychopath you could ever hope not to meet.
As the hunt for Ward follows a trail of bodies across Europe to America, the detective begins to harbour doubts about his client. There are some things Ed hasn’t revealed to him, his wife or the police – like his online relationship with a woman in New York.
Now at every twist and turn the truth becomes more elusive. Who is really hunting whom? And what is the mystery reaching out of the past and locking Ed and Ward in a struggle for revenge that may conceal an even darker secret?
