In 1961, the temperature hit ninety degrees Fahrenheit before lunchtime. It was going to be a scorcher as surfers and campers flocked to Narrabeen, one of Sydney's northern beaches. Late afternoon a typical southerly buster whipped up a sandstorm. Amid the mayhem Peter Wishart, barely three at the time, vanished.
The story explores every mother's worst nightmare — the disappearance of a child. As the Wishart family struggle to overcome their grief and loss, nearly two decades later new evidence starts to emerge. A plot centered on overcoming grief quickly turns to one of revenge.
