    A 36-year-old cold case in a small town in Derbyshire is cracked wide open by the deaths of two women. First, Yvonne Jenkins commits suicide on the anniversary of the day in 1978 when her daughter, Sophie, and Rachel Jones, both eight years old, were abducted on their way to school. Later that day, Rachel made her way out of the nearby woods, with little memory of what had happened, but no trace of Sophie was ever found. Days after the suicide, the body of Penny Lander, who had been a teacher at the girls' school, is found strangled in the same woods. Rachel, now a genealogist in the same town, simply wants to live quietly, but she works with DI Frances Sadler and his team members DS Damian Palmer and DC Connie Childs to eventually uncover long-hidden secrets behind both old and current crimes. Ward, a reviewer of international crime fiction on her blog, Crimepieces, skillfully weaves a compelling plot in this police procedural with a genealogical bent. An accomplished debut by a writer to watch. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
