Ten seconds before the accident, Cate and Aiden Gascoigne’s car is recorded on CCTV. Inside the vehicle, the couple are laughing. And then their car leaves the road and plunges into a ninety-foot ravine.

Cate and Aiden have vanished into thin air.
What happened to Cate and Aiden? And how does their disappearance connect to a notorious, 30-year-old murder? Only David Raker can find out the truth…
