Vicki gives an overview of the book:

In the bucolic mountain town of Trafalgar, B.C. a young woman is found dead of a heroin overdose, her baby at her side. Marks of restraint indicate that it wasn’t an accident.  Before the police can discover who killed her, and why, they first have to find out who she was.  As the case becomes increasingly personal for them both, Probationary Constable Molly Smith and Sergeant John Winters are plunged into the strange netherworld of a young woman who didn’t exist and a town that was happy to let her remain that way. Second in the series that began with In the Shadow of the Glacier
