About the Book

It is 2008 when two innocent bystanders stumble onto a gruesome scene. A girl lies in the road, barely recognizable but alive. The dead body of a man rests a short distance away. The girl’s beloved dog, Pepe, is injured but devotedly guarding her. After Maria and Balke call for help, the girl is transported to the hospital where her identity remains a mystery. Raja Abdul Aziz is not a policeman, but instead, a man blessed with a mind that never forgets anything he sees or hears. When he is approached by two policemen who ask for his help solving the shocking case, he unwittingly unravels the story of Helena, a spoiled, thirteen-year-old heiress who first killed the kidnapper who violently attacked her and her dog, murdered his partner, and then was raised in secret by her rescuers to hide her identity. As more information rises to the surface, Aziz’s probe unfortunately leads to tragic circumstances as he unwittingly seals Helena’s doom. In this mysterious tale, a savant detective called upon to investigate a mass murder uncovers a surprising chain of events that ultimately decides a young woman’s fate.
