Time is running out for Inspector James Dent. On the trail of missing singer Billy K, his team has exhausted every lead. The investigation has cost Dent his marriage, his home and possibly his job. All he has left is a copy of Show Me the Sky - the book Billy was reading when he vanished. With only the clothes on his back, Dent himself disappears. From the love letter of a motorcyclist stranded in central Australia, to the seedy streets and brothels of Mombasa, Dent begins to wonder if he is a trailing a man, a ghost, or himself.
