'Steve Mosby has become one of a handful of writers who make me excited about crime fiction' Val McDermid
This is not a story about a girl who disappears. This is the story of a little girl who comes back.
As if from nowhere, she appears one day on a seaside promenade, dirty and in shock, and unable to tell the police officer who finds her her name. Holding a black flower and clearly traumatised, her reappearance unlocks a horrifying story, triggering a chain reaction of lies and deadly illusions that will claim many more victims in the years to come.
Meanwhile, Neil Dawson is devastated following the suicide of his father. As he clears through the belongings that are left behind, he finds a copy of an old novel - The Black Flower. By opening, Neil is plunged into an investigation full of danger, pain and subterfuge.
For fans of shocking and twisty thrillers, this book gives a fresh light to the idea that you can never really know a person - especially the ones you love.
