'Kate Gilby' turns up dressed in rags in a local hospital.
She disappeared four years ago with her daughter Sophie. There was an extensive nation-wide search, however, they appeared to be missing without trace.

However, the house does not appear to exist, and this 'Kate' is over twenty stone in weight with short blonde hair, whereas the Kate who disappeared was slim and dark. Is she really Kate Gilby? There is no-one to identify her.
DS Angela McCarthy has been put in charge of the case to prove her ability for promotion. However, she is stumped, and asks her friend, Resa James the criminal psychologist who is a police consultant, to help. Although Resa has her own problems to contend with, she agrees to Angela’s request.
The case is not as simple as it seems, it opens a large can of worms with International repercussions and the involvement of the FBI.
