Now Wexford, seeking connections among the three women, cast his baleful eye on the changes in once rural Sussex--from a Kuwaiti millionaire's Rolls-Royce to the growing slums and dismal hopelessness of unemployed youth. What he can't see among them is the shocking, blood-chilling motive to kill. And what he has yet to find is a doctor's missing child....
