Penn visits her cousin Karen Slocombe one summer Sunday with mixed motives. Not only does Penn want to renew contact with a relative not seen since childhood, but she is also looking for help with the disappearance of Justine, another cousin. Drew Slocombe has a reputation for unravelling such mysteries and Penn hopes he and Karen can be of assistance. Justine's mother, Roman Millan, claims to be unconcerned at her daughter's disappearance. Roman's husband, Laurie, however, believes otherwise, although he is not aware of the tangle of family secrets that led to a five-year estrangement between Roman and Justine.
At first, Drew and his business partner Maggs enter into the investigation with scant enthusiasm. However, when they encounter Detective Sergeant Den Cooper, feelings become considerably stronger. The realisation that a small child is also missing further escalates the sense of urgency for all concerned.
