What could be worse than losing a child on Christmas Eve?
Three year old Anna Brennan was abducted from her seat in a crowded church at midnight mass while her parents left her for a moment to receive Communion. She is kidnapped, believed murdered.
Twenty years later, in the process of a burglary investigation at a nun's convent, a startling piece of evidence accidentally comes to light. Could Anna still be alive? If so, who abducted her, and why? Detective Constable Greg Raine is assigned the task of solving the case and reuniting Anna with her parents. But a nightmare of treachery and murder lies ahead. In a shattering climax, the detective unearths the secret behind Anna’s disappearance … and it’s a discovery that comes at a terrifying price.
