The Girl Who Wasn't


The Girl Who Wasn't

Spring is in the air, and Glasgow criminology lecturer Anna Scavolini, soaking up the sun in Kelvingrove Park, can't help but look on longingly at the young couple canoodling on the bench opposite.

But when the girl, third-year student Cora Pettigrew, goes missing following an argument with her volatile boyfriend, Anna quickly suspects foulplay. Is her imagination running away from her, or is she the unwitting witness to a crime of passion?

Unable to let matters lie, Anna uses her knowledge of the university and its institutions to pursue her own investigation. But can she succeed in getting to the bottom of Cora's disappearance before something truly awful happens to her... or is she already too late?
