A "breathtaking" (The New York Times Book Review) page-turner inspired by a shocking true crime, from the Edgar-Award winning author of Under the Harrow "A better person would for-give him. A different sort of better person would have found him years ago."
Nearly thirty years ago, while Claire and her brother slept upstairs, a brutal crime was committed in their grand London home. The next morning, her father's car was found abandoned, with bloodstains on the front seat. The first lord accused of murder in more than a century, he has been missing ever since.
Now a doctor living under an assumed name, Claire learns the police may have found him, and her carefully calibrated existence begins to fracture. She starts to infiltrate his privileged inner circle, who have never broken their silence about what happened that night. Soon, Claire will learn how far she'll go to finally find the truth."
