Information
'For a good, absorbing, well-told story, you could hardly better the unveiling of Asta's secret' Sunday Times

It is 1905. Asta and her husband Rasmus have come to East London from Denmark with their two little boys. With Rasmus constantly away on business, Asta keeps loneliness and isolation at bay by writing a diary. These diaries, published over seventy years later, reveal themselves to be more than a mere journal. For they seem to hold the key to an unsolved murder and to the mystery of a missing child. It falls to Asta's granddaughter Ann to unearth the buried secrets of nearly a century before.

'An engrossing double-detective story, a mixture of biography, true crime and romance people with vivid minor players and red with herrings' Independent on Sunday

'Absolutely enthralling . . . the best yet from the Vine/Rendell bureau. Essential reading' Literary Review
