Thomas is missing…Thomas, the adored son of Frank, the confidante of his Aunt Georgina and the heir apparent to Uncle Guy. But only now, with his disappearance, so the three members of the family realise that this lionised boy, this golden boy is flawed – with evil through to his very soul. Far from being a worthy son, confidante and heir apparent, he is perverted, manipulative and disruptive. The ripples created by his disappearance flood out through the family, causing them to reassess their present lives, their feelings about each other and their attitudes towards Thomas. And in the background is Thomas, malignant puppeteer of a family which jerks to his tune.
