'Wow!!! What a read. Engrossing, fast-paced...A definite from me.' Angela Marsons
When revenge is everything, justice is nothing
Retired teacher, Maggie Ramsay, is found dead outside her Perth home, the victim of a hit-and-run. An everyday tragedy - or so it seems. While DCI Hazel Todd and her squad look for the culprit, they're called to attend the death of loner, Peter King, found stabbed to death in a squalid flat.
Two very different victims, two very different deaths. But as Hazel investigates the cases, she finds that both Maggie and Peter are concealing their own crimes. Maggie's drunk driving caused the death of a ten-year-old boy a year ago, while Peter has retreated from the world to hide his harmful past.
As Hazel tries to find the link between the two victims before another murder takes place, information comes to light that throws the case wide open. It seems that someone will spill blood to take their revenge - and soon, Hazel is in the sights of a psychopath with nothing to lose.
An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller that will thrill fans of Stuart MacBride and Peter Robinson.
