"When Mayumi Matsukawa goes missing from her Wales boarding school dormitory one freezing February night, Inspector Mike Yeadings and his skeleton team are faced with the labyrinthine logistics of a twin investigation." "Beautiful and intelligent, the daughter of a wealthy Japanese business magnate and his English wife appears to be an obvious target for abduction. But when rumors of marital discord and extracurricular association with a London fashion photographer arise, the Thames Valley Police must deepen their lines of inquiry." "Fears for Mayumi's safety turn out to be unfounded, but when her return and second disappearance frame the grisly death of her father's chief executive - the man who had just accompanied the errant girl back to school - one detail crucially confuses and defines the case: Dispatched to Britain in his boss's name, the murder victim may have suffered the fate planner for Mr. Matsukawa himself." "As Sergeants Beaumont and Rosemary Zycynski set about connecting the murder and the missing person, they become increasingly convinced that the truth lies within the corporate jealousy and calculating passion of the close-knit industrial community of north Wales."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
