About this product
- DescriptionFifteen-year-old Sarah Vale has gone missing in the small town of Banville. She's the daughter of the town prostitute so one seems particularly concerned. No one cares except Tommy Johns, who loves Sarah Vale with all the unadulterated, tentative passion of a teenage boy. He galvanises the town's policeman Sergeant Henson and, together, they turn the town inside out, searching for the lost girl. A delicate and layered exploration of secrets and lies, forgotten children and absent parents, and the long shadows of the past. An extraordinary debut from a talented new writer.
