....Where are you, Anette, he wonders? And what's the work you intend to complete?
(ch. 12)

Book description: A solitary tent is found to contain the body of a half-buried woman. Internet reporter Henning Juul is told to cover the story, but despite the police making an early arrest, he seems convinced that the story is more complex than they think. Physically and emotionally scarred from the death of his son, Henning must battle to be taken seriously again as a reporter - by his old colleagues, his ex-wife and the police - and when another life is lost, he knows the stakes couldn't be higher.
