Crossbones Yard was a burial ground once. Now it's wasteland, tucked away in the back streets of Borough beneath the shadow of the Shard. The perfect place to leave a body...

Alice Quentin finds the murder victim lying there - the woman's hand outstretched, as if begging for her help. A psychologist who sometimes works with the Metropolitan police, Alice is no stranger to sick minds. But this case is worse than anything she's seen before, and the killer is determined to make it personal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There are some great twists, turns and surprises in this debut novel. * Sun *
Alice is a vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline * Sophie Hannah, Sunday Express *
Quentin is one of a cast of really believable and entertaining characters and both the plot and the writing keep one thoroughly engaged throughout. A stylish debut * Daily Mail *
A pacy psychological thriller that makes good use of its London setting. * Laura Wilson, Guardian *
What I liked most about CROSSBONES YARD was the fresh voice of the protagonist, a psychologist whose work with vulnerable patients spills over into her family life. Rhodes conjures up her London landscape vividly * Val McDermid *
Like Nicci French, Kate Rhodes excels at character, pace and sense of place. Alice Quentin is compelling and completely convincing: I look forward to following the series. * Erin Kelly *
An utterly brilliant, exhilarating read and I devoured every page. The characters, especially the bold and brave heroine, are touchingly real. Now that I've finished it I feel bereft, the only consolation being that it's the start of an Alice Quentin series and although I have a while to wait, I will get to read more. -- Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner, Amazon Rising Star 2011 and TV Book Club pick.
A very impressive debut. After a powerful opening, Kate's vivid, pacy writing style swept me into the story. Alice is a very strong character, and the well-constructed, complex plot kept me intrigued right up to the end * Aline Templeton *
A fresh voice in crime fiction, bringing an intriguing and appealing central character in the form of psychologist Alice Quentin - who I expect to be with us for a long time to come. I loved the way the Kate Rhodes uses all the senses to draw the reader into her compelling fictional world. * Stephen Booth *
An atmospheric, smart, often terrifying read. * Louise Penny *
