Mourning the Little Dead


Twenty-three years ago, Helen Jones disappeared on her way to school. She was twelve years old and no trace of her or how she died was ever found. But now a confession in a sealed envelope has been discovered in the possession of a dead man. And strangely this discovery has come to light now that another young girl has gone missing. Naomi Blake had been Helen’s best friend, and as they were inseparable companions, Naomi was the last person to have seen her alive. Having quarreled on the morning of Helen’s disappearance, Naomi has never forgiven herself and now, blinded from an accident and a reluctant ex-policewoman, she sets out to uncover the long-hidden truth behind Helen’s vanishing. With the police keeping unnervingly quiet as to the identity of the confessor and focusing on the new missing person case, Naomi struggles to understand what happened to her friend all those years ago…
