Detective Inspector Vincent Ruiz is fished out of the Thames with a bullet in his leg and, post-surgery, no memory of how he got there or what he was working on. With help from clinical psychologist Dr Joseph O'Loughlin Ruiz comes to realise he was investigating the disappearance of 8 year old Mickey Carlyle, a case closed 3 years previously.

"For my mother and father."
ABC Radio National's "Bookshow" put Robotham's fiction in perspective: "His books Lost, The Night Ferry and most recently Shatter, have reinforced his reputation as one of the best architects of the psychological thriller."
The Australian Crime Fiction Database stated that the author "delivers an outstanding thriller with complex characters, pressure coming from both within the police force and from a dangerous unknown assailant and a strong unexpected ending."
