"Arresting." - Wall Street Journal
Three children have been abducted. The only clues are a daffodil, a yellow Volvo, and the testimony of a deranged psychic who has seen their eventual murder "through the clouds." Detective Inspector Dave Creegan (Robson Green, Reckless) is hell-bent on finding the missing boys before it's too late, by whatever means necessary, however unorthodox, and whatever the price.
Creegan discovers that the disappearance of the boys and the curious disposition of daffodils recall a similar unsolved incident in Stuttgart several years before. And when it's determined that the owner of the Volvo is pharmaceutical engineer Dr. Ronald Hinks (Ian McDiarmid, Star Wars), formerly of Stuttgart, the case seems straightforward enough. But when searches of Hinks's residence and laboratory, at home and abroad, yield no hard evidence, it looks like the smug scientist is going to get away with murder. Time is running short - and if the kidnapper remains true to form, the boys are still alive. For now.
Locked in a stalemate with Hinks and desperate to find the children, Creegan decides to take matters into his own hands - and a shocking climax reveals that Hinks has not completely dodged justice.
