One sentence summary:- Lost in a snow storm after her mother’s car crashed, a young girl is found in woods clutching a skull; thereby distracting forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod from investigating a body in a burned skip.

General comments:- This is the sixth Rhona MacLeod book.

I don't like the cover - which shows a damaged doll. A skull would have been acceptable but the damaged doll makes it seem like a horror story - it nearly put me off reading it.
