First edition. Near fine in pictorial wrappers. Mark Chamberlain is a man who has everything - a job he loves; a cop on his trail; and a houseful of stolen electrical goods. All he's missing is Caroline May, and she's been gone for twenty-five years. Nobody knows what happened to her, though they still tell the stories. One afternoon her parents came home and she was gone. They covered the city with posters and the cops drowned in paperwork. She had been seen on the ferry, on a plane, and with a stranger. Each night Mark breaks into a house looking for Caroline. One night he's in an apartment and he finds a shrine: scrapbooks, photos, her as a baby, her in a swimsuit and the two of them at school together. That sends him spiralling out of control, in a search to solve the puzzle that's haunted him his entire adult life.
