As Rose Trevelyan wanders along the beautiful Cornwall seaside, she is relieved to see a seemingly lone child claimed by her father. However, things get confusing when Sally, a frantic mother, reports her daughter missing, and Rose's boyfriend, a police inspector, is called in. Narrator Patricia Gallimore renders the requisite degree of drama in the emotional story. Most fascinating are the two sisters, Carol and Sally, who compete over EVERYTHING. Bolitho's characters are well drawn, particularly Rose's newly widowed father. Despite the bizarre family dynamics, Gallimore remains believable. This is a different type of police procedural, one that contains police and witness errors, giving listeners a unique inside view. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
