For Ewa Moreno, Chief Inspector Van Veeteren’s protege, her most perplexing case yet.

A community is left reeling after a teacher - Arnold Maager - is convicted of murdering his female pupil Winnie Maas.

Years later, on her eighteenth birthday, Maager’s daughter Mikaela finally learns the terrible truth about her father. Desperate for answers, she travels to the institution at Lejnice, where Maager has been held since his trial. But soon afterwards she inexplicably vanishes.

Detective Inspector Ewa Moreno from the Mariam Police is on a holiday in the area when she finds herself drawn into the mystery of Mikaela’s disappearance. But before she can make any headway in the case, Maager himself disappears - and then a body is found. It soon becomes clear to Ewa that only unravelling the events of the past will unlock this dark crime.
