    When Ashton was a child, he committed a heinous crime. Now he’s back in the North Yorkshire town where the traumatic event took place, having taken a job as an art instructor. Though it’s good to be home, he fears unwanted attention—especially after an older teacher recognizes him as the troubled boy from all those years ago. 
     
    When eight-year-old Leo disappears on his way home from school, a desperate search begins. Then a local woman hears of Ashton’s return and reports him to the police. Being added to a short list of suspects is a frightening turn of events for Ashton. But it’s not nearly as terrifying as Leo’s predicament: being locked in a soundproof room, wondering what his unpredictable captor will do next.
