Rose Janko is missing.

It has been seven years since she disappeared, and nobody said a word.

Small-time private investigator Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and

delirium in a hospital bed. But before the accident that landed him there,

he’d been hired to find Rose, the young wife of a charismatic son of a travelling

gypsy family, who went missing seven years earlier.

Half-Romany himself, Ray is well aware he’s been chosen more for his blood

than his investigative skills. Still, he’s surprised by the hostility he encounters

from the Jankos, who haven’t had an easy past.

Touched by tragedy - they’re either cursed, or hiding a terrible secret -

the discovery of which Ray can’t help but suspect is connected to

Rose’s disappearance...
