Bangkok–a city of heady contradictions–inspires Lara McClintoch’s sense of adventure and her impressive sleuthing skills when a fellow antiques dealer disappears without a trace.
When Will Beauchamp locked the door of his antique shop in Bangkok for the last time and quietly disappeared, he left behind a family in Toronto and a lot of questions.
When fellow antiques dealer Lara McClintoch tries to find him in Thailand, she faces suspicion and deceit.
Did Will run away? Was he involved in corruption? Why was he fascinated by an old murder case? Now people he knew are under attack. Lara regrets she started this search, but she won’t stop looking.
