Clare Riordan and her son Mikey are abducted from Clapham Common early one morning. Hours later, the boy is found wandering disorientated. Soon after, a pack of Clare's blood is left on a doorstep in the heart of the City of London.

Alice Quentin is brought in to help the traumatised child uncover his memories - which might lead them to his mother's captors. But she swiftly realises Clare is not the first victim... nor will she be the last.

The killers are driven by a desire for revenge... and in the end, it will all come down to blood.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Excellent...based on a true, fascinating and shocking story * Literary Review *
Rhodes goes from strength to strength with this acute reminder of how bureaucratic neglect produced mass tragedy. A fast-paced, riveting read. -- Alex Marwood
An original and exciting story made all the more disturbing by the fact that the underlying premise is based on real events. An excellent read. -- Rachel Abbott
A pacy, finely crafted plot, and the central idea of tainted blood is fantastically well threaded into the story. More than anything, it is written with heart -- Alison Joseph
The pace never lets up in Kate Rhodes' latest thriller - and neither does the blood! A fast and at times gruesome read made doubly compelling for having its basis in fact. -- Tamar Cohen
Praise for Kate Rhodes * . *
An enjoyably scary chiller * Sunday Mirror *
Alice is a wonderfully rounded female protagonist who is vividly written, emotionally accessible and strong. Peppered with false trails, the reader is guessing the killer's identity right up to the last minute. This is a bone chilling read that will grip you from beginning to end * Express *
A terrific new heroine on the block * Woman & Home *
Like Nicci French, Kate Rhodes excels at character, pace and sense of place -- Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree
A pacy psychological thriller that makes good use of its London setting -- Laura Wilson * Guardian *
Alice is a vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline -- Sophie Hannah * Daily Express *
