Product description

Rose’s mother and Joshua’s father are missing. The police investigation has gone nowhere and the case has been closed; their parents presumed dead. But Joshua and Rose still hold out hope. Joshua is following up his own inquiries, which includes working out the meaning of the cryptic notebooks – the ‘murder notebooks’ – they have discovered. And then Rose is distracted by odd, desperate messages she receives from Rachel, a former best friend from her school. Then terrible news arrives: Rachel is dead. Could her violent murder add one more piece to the puzzle of their parents’ unexplained fate?
