Wycliffe investigates the disappearance of a young girl - and becomes involved in a major criminal investigation . . .

Chief Superintendent Wycliffe doubted whether he would enjoy his Christmas. With his wife away, he rashly accepted an invitation to stay with a Penzance lawyer and his family, but when he arrives the weather is awful, the house miles from anywhere, and the family less than welcoming.

Then a young girl goes missing. Wycliffe had seen her playing the part of the Virgin in the local nativity play, but when he asks around he discovers the girl was difficult and unpopular in the neighbourhood. Even her parents seem indifferent to their daughter's disappearance. So Wycliffe instigates a search - and soon finds himself caught up in a major criminal investigation . . .

Chief Superintendent Wycliffe is not looking forward to Christmas. With his wife away in Kenya he rashly accepts an invitation from Penzance lawyer Ernest Bishop to spend a few days at the Bishops' cliff-top home. When Wycliffe arrives the weather is bleak, the house remote, and the welcome from the family no more than polite.
Then a young girl goes missing after playing the part of the Virgin in the local nativity play. The girl was withdrawn, difficult and unpopular in the neigbourhood, and even her parents seen strangely unsurprised by their daughter's disappearance.
It is left to Wycliffe to initiate a search - but what begins as a missing person case soon turns into a major criminal investigation.
