There's an instinct all investigators share: the lure of the curious. We're like collectors rummaging through the shadowy corners of a bric-a-brac shop; we just can't resist intrigue when it pops up. PI Eddie Flynn is having a bad day. When some snot-nosed kid barges in with a story about a missing girl, it doesn't get any better - especially since Rebecca Slater's parents say nothing's wrong. Problem is, the family are telling lies. Before he knows it Flynn's following a trail that leads out of the Slaters' mansion and straight into the gutter. Down among the rats Rebecca's not the only girl who's missing - and in a game where there's no such thing as coincidence, how long will it be before Flynn disappears too?
