Mick Herron's debut novel is also the first of four to feature Zoë Boehm, private investigator. When a neighbouring house in suburban south Oxford is destroyed by a massive explosion, and a child disappears in the aftermath, Sarah Tucker - a young, married woman, bored and unhappy with her life - becomes obsessed with trying to find the little girl. Now best-known for his series about Jackson Lamb and the Slow Horses of Slough House, this is where it all began. An immaculate signed first impression. Scarce.
