First edition. Fine in dust jacket. Amy Fosterâ s granddad dies unexpectedly and thereâ s no money to bury him, so the orphaned youngster decides on burglary as a career. Unfortunately, she picks on stately Hawkhills just as its owners, first cousins Rick and Drusilla Layton, return home. With an unscrupulous gleam in their eyes, the Laytons give her room, board, a makeover, and a job. Amy is soon, uncomfortably, posing nude for artist Drusilla and overhearing Rick put the moves on Harry Westonâ s wife, Yvonne, in the hopes that sheâ ll convince Harry to sell him his computer firm. When Amy asks about the bars on her bedroom windows, sheâ s told that they were put there to protect dear old granny, now locked away in a nursing home. In the meantime, DCI Millison and DS Scobie are looking into the 12-year-old missing persons case of the former Laytonâ s au pair, Katrina Kovacs. While in Laytonâ s employ, Katrina communicated regularly with her father, who was incarcerated in a high security prison. Suddenly the weekly letters stopped arriving and the au pair's father is released from prison. Drusillaâ s mom, Constance, insists that young Katrina simply disappeared, but when Harry is stabbed to death and an incriminating photograph is found in his safe, the detectives decide they have a double homicide on their hands! Present-day events seamlessly meld with past encounters as the sordid facts of Katrina's disappearance gradually emerge. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 17138
