Nearby, the body of another young woman is discovered buried on a remote beach.
But the dead girl was never reported missing - her estranged family having received regular texts from her over the years.
Someone has been keeping her alive from beyond the grave.

Now, as she struggles to understand the killer's motivation, she begins a desperate race against time . . .
