Synopsis of this title

In Montana, a man attends the funeral of his parents, ostensibly killed in a car crash. In Los Angeles, a fifteen-year-old girl is abducted by a man assumed dead. These events are linked by the fact that in both there is something missing. As there is in so much of the world, for so much of the time. What's missing is a secret, something which strikes at the heart of what it is to be human. What it is that makes us this way.

The Guardian, August 3, 2002--'A staggering, suspenseful journey through the darkness of American crime...it succeeds in revitalising the serial-killer novel with assured gusto.'
