23 Sep 2008: This is a great Paul Temple mystery about a child that goes missing but, in true Paul Temple fashion, ends up being about so much more than that. It has all the elements in it that make Paul Temple mysteries so appealing, some car crashes (Steve ending up in a river), red herrings, plenty of confusion, some dead people and interestingly, a few bashed up women! Thoroughly enjoyed it!
