The boy's body was so white it was almost transparent. But that's not what caused the nausea to rise up her throat. He was so young. His body was unmarked, surrounded by a halo of plucked wildflowers.
One hot summer evening, eleven-year-old Mikey Driscoll is on the way home from playing with friends. Two days later, his body is discovered on a bed of wildflowers by some local teenagers.
The case is assigned to Detective Lottie Parker and this time it's personal. The victim was a close friend of her son, Sean, from the run-down Munbally estate on the other side of town.

Then days later, another boy is found dead, surrounded by wild flowers next to beautiful Ladystown Lake.

Someone is hiding something but who are they protecting and can Lottie find out before it's too late? Lottie is desperate to catch the killer before he strikes again because this time her own child could be in terrible danger...
