What readers and reviewers say
'Isaac does a superb job of escalating the tension and dread' Publishers Weekly
'Visceral and compelling reading. Another cracker from Jane Isaac.' Ian Patrick, author of 'Rubicon'
'A well-crafted mystery… Isaac creates some well-drawn three-dimensional characters and at each sitting I was left reading more than I intended to. Crime writing at its best.' David Evans, CWA Debut Dagger-shortlisted author of 'Torment'
'Jane Isaac just gets better with every book. Deeply unsettling and unputdownable.' Rebecca Bradley, bestselling author of the DI Hannah Robbins series
'A perfectly executed police investigation into a horrific act of violence and a moving depiction of buried secrets. My first read from Jane Isaac but definitely not my last.' Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill and A Deadly Thaw
'An intelligent, convincing thriller with genuine characters and a pacy plot. Jane Isaac writes unmissable quality crime fiction.' Michael Wood, author of 'For Reasons Unknown'
'Gripped from the very first page. A highly satisfying, but deeply unsettling tale of a family torn apart. Expertly told from both sides of the investigation… and just when you think it's over, it's only really the beginning. Mesmerising and disturbing, this is crime writing at its very best.' June Taylor, author of 'Losing Juliet'
'Brilliantly and intricately plotted, Jane Isaac has produced a terrific page-turner' Lizzie Sirett, Mystery People
