Investigating his first murder since his promotion, Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty is dismayed that the victim is a girl with no face, no ID and no clothes, found in a place she had no business being – a private psychiatric hospital. With the staff and owner of the hospital denying all knowledge of her, Rafferty has to dig deep to solve the case.
