Synopsis

A shocking murder and a foundling baby reveal a perverse criminal underworld stretching across Europe—from the international bestselling author of Call Me Princess and Only One Life

A young woman’s body is found on the street in Copenhagen’s Vesterbro district, her throat slit, and the media is clamoring for the grisly details. Detective Louise Rick is investigating the gruesome murder when her friend, Camilla Lind, calls. Louise assumes it is because Camilla, a crime reporter on a morning paper, wants to be the first to hear of any juicy new developments. Instead, her distraught friend reveals that her eleven-year-old son found an abandoned baby on his way to school.

As Louise digs deeper into the murder and the mysterious foundling, every uncovered clue points to organized human trafficking from Eastern Europe, run by ruthless gangsters who despise women and won’t hesitate to kill anyone who gets in their way . . .
