It's late. The phone rings. The man on the other end says his daughter is missing. Your daughter. The baby you gave away over 15 years ago. What do you do? PI Nora Watts isn't sure that she wants to get involved. Troubled, messed up, and with more than enough problems of her own, Nora doesn't want to revisit the past. But then she sees the photograph. A girl, a teenager, with her eyes. How can she turn her back on her? But going in search of her daughter brings Nora into contact with a past that she would rather forget, a past that she has worked hard to put behind her, but which is always there, waiting for her - in a syringe, in a bottle.
