Kit Quinn is a young woman who inhabits dangerous worlds: crime
scenes, interrogation scenes, hospitals for the criminally insane.
Horribly wounded in an attack by a suspect, she must return to the
site of her worst fears. She is asked by the police to advise them
on a simple murder inquiry. A young runaway has been found killed
by a canal and the chief suspect is the man who wounded Kit. But
Kit refuses to accept appearances and her obsessive search for the
truth draws her into an underworld of the missing and the unloved
which puts her at terrible risk.
