Nessa gets an enigmatic phone message - "Is your secret safe?" - prompting her to surmise that the abductors of Kasim are the people who kidnapped her and Atika in Gaza eight years earlier. Hugo latches onto the fact that Nessa went missing at the time when he discovers that Ephra was running the foundation on her behalf and passes on to Ephra his awareness of the fact. Ephra's wife Rachel, not blind to her husband's infidelity with Atika, forces a DNA test to prove that he is Kasim's father but the test proves negative whilst the recovering Nathaniel establishes that there was a conspiracy to force the injured abductor, Michel Getz, to kill himself and, against Nessa's advice but supported by Frances, conducts his own investigation - to his cost.
