As the country bakes under the relentless summer sun, a young doctor is found brutally murdered at his home in a picturesque Cambridgeshire village. Is his death connected to his private life - or his professional one? Dr Joshua Ainsworth worked at an all-female detention centre, one still recovering from a major scandal a few years before. Was he the whistle-blower - or an instigator? As Detective Sergeant Ferreira and Detective Inspector Zigic begin to painstakingly reconstruct Dr Ainsworth's last days, they uncover yet more secrets and more suspects. But this isn't the only case that's demanding their attention - a violent criminal has been released on a technicality and the police force know he will strike again: the only question is who will be his first victim...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A new read from Eva Dolan is always a pleasure and her latest is as dark and gritty as ever ... Dolan puts troubling contemporary themes at the heart of her fiction, creating a compelling mystery about the treatment of vulnerable immigrants in a secretive establishment * Sunday Times *
Yet again, Eva Dolan has produced a compelling and often dramatic whodunit that tells you more about the state of the nation than a sheaf of newspapers * Sunday Express *
Eva Dolan's issue-led procedurals have the heft of nineteenth-century Russian novels. She depicts the breakthroughs and drawbacks of an investigation, the feint and parry of interviews, in engrossing detail and with great skill * The Times *
Gripping from the first page, this is crime fiction with heart, a social conscience and an ending that packs a powerful emotional punch. I was a fan before. Now I'm in awe -- Paul Burston
Anyone wanting smart and compelling crime fiction with razor-sharp social comment should read Eva Dolan. In fact, EVERYONE should read her -- Praise for Eva Dolan, Mark Billingham
A master of pace ... [Dolan writes] richly imagined, cleverly plotted and socially aware stories, which will also have you turning the pages well into the small hours -- Praise for Eva Dolan * Independent *
Dolan is expert at the orchestration of tension -- Praise for Eva Dolan * Guardian *
Eva is a brilliant storyteller and the stories she tells are as compelling as they are important. She's a star -- Praise for Eva Dolan, Will Dean
