Some secrets won't stay buried... THE LOST
____________

Private Investigator Harry Lind doesn't believe in ghosts. Little Grace Harper went missing over twenty years ago and missing girls can't just reappear. Or can they?

Reporter Jess Vaughan is convinced Grace is still alive, but she's going to need some help to prove it. When a brutal murder makes Harry reconsider Grace's disappearance, he and Jess are drawn together.

As Jess and Harry begin to unravel an age-old web of deceit and betrayal their discoveries put them on a collision course with Jimmy Keppell, one of London's most notorious gangsters. Their search for the truth, it seems, could cost them their lives.
