Kids are disappearing but no one cares. Homeless, frightened and alone, Link finds himself down-and-out in London after fleeing from his brutish stepfather. He only survives because he's befriended by streetwise Ginger. When Ginger suddenly disappears, Link is in despair. Then he meets Gail, and even the cold doorways and hard pavements don't seem so bad. He even stops thinking about Ginger, but other kids are vanishing now. Intent on his grisly mission, the man who calls himself Shelter stalks his next victim. Will it be Link?
