On 7th July 2005, a man disappears, believed dead, in the London bombings. Some years later, a freelance journalist recognizes his photograph in a newspaper - the man she has just seen in a café. From that second, Alice’s life will be changed forever in ways she could never have foreseen. Immediately she is pitched into a race against time that takes her from London, across Britain and into the heart of a mystery – the reason for his disappearance on that fateful day. Spurred on by her unwavering belief in his innocence regarding an unsolved murder on the eve of the bombings, she begins to question the official version of events and to challenge the mindset and motivation of those also seeking him. Then other developments begin to overshadow her search for the truth which becomes a frantic battle for her own survival. For Inspector Jim Rodgers, this had been his final, most agonising case: a murder with no murderer, an inquiry ending in dead-lock and unfinished business, the aftermath still haunting him down the years. The tragedy begins on 7th July 2005. But it does not stop there. Fate catches up with everyone … in the end.

But at the time, they are quite separate, quite distinct.

What lies ahead is already here - with the shocking revelation of... The De Clerambault Code.
