Anita Margolis has vanished. Dark and exquisite, Anita¿s character is as mysterious as her disappearance. But with no body and no apparent crime, seemingly there¿s nothing to be investigated.
Until Wexford receives an anonymous note claiming ¿a girl called Ann¿ was killed the very night Anita disappeared.
