Backpacker, Soleil ‘Sunny’ Reyer is gone. Tanned, glowing and star of the Missing poster; no one thought fruit-picking could be deadly.
Journalist, Jessica Steyn was the last person to give Sunny a lift. Assigned the biggest story in her career, Jessica is on the job. Dig, dig, dig … until she buries herself.
The cold case file never leaves his desk in the same way that Detective Nick Clarkson is stuck in Strand Harbour fifteen years after Sunny disappeared. Less hair, marriage over, no sign of Sunny.
Author Coen Watson’s people are water people; his trust in it is marrow-deep – he’s counting on Strand Harbour to cure his writer’s block. Unpacking, he forces open a drawer corroded by salt air to find a faded Missing poster for Soleil Reyer. The author begins picking at old wounds.
