A slick, smart, stylish - and shocking - thriller from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.

On a remote farm, an elderly woman takes a fall outside and, unable to move, is consumed overnight by two of her pigs.

The victim was the renowned and reclusive photographer Sophie Bertilak - and the first photo she ever took remains her most infamous: a missing girl who was never seen again. Most strangely, inside the house, all the photos have been removed from their frames...

Forensic veterinarian Cooper Allen is called in for the post-mortem - and becomes obsessed with the victim, her family, and the crimes she brought to light decades ago.

As Cooper pulls on a dark thread of deception and double-lives, she begins to unravel the case - as well as herself...
