Investigator Darby McCormick remembers the case. She knows there's only ever been one suspect, Father Richard Byrne, linked inconclusively to two similar disappearances.
Finally, terminally ill, Byrne is willing to talk. But he'll only talk to Darby.
She's expecting a confession - but what she hears is far more disturbing.
And it soon becomes clear that someone is willing to kill to keep this cold case on ice...
