Summary

"In 1961, the temperature hit ninety degrees Fahrenheit before lunchtime. It was going to be a scorcher as surfers and campers flocked to Narrabeen, one of Sydney's northern beaches. Late afternoon a typical southerly buster whipped up a sandstorm. Amid the mayhem Peter Wishart, barely three at the time, vanished. The story explores every mother's worst nightmare -- the disappearance of a child. As the Wishart family struggle to overcome their grief and loss, nearly two decades later new evidence starts to emerge. A plot centered on overcoming grief quickly turns to one of revenge."--Back cover.
