“Gripping . . . will draw in admirers of Peter James and Val McDermid” Library Journal

A complex psychological thriller featuring three chilling principle protagonists in a baffling murder investigation. Nothing is as it first appears…

The discovery of the partially-clothed body of a teenage girl in the heart of Bristol’s red light district indicates a tragic yet familiar scenario. But this marks the start of a baffling murder investigation where nothing is as it first appears. Fourteen-year-old Melanie Cooke told her mother she was visiting a school friend. Who was she really going to meet?

Detective Inspector David Vogel is led towards three very different principal protagonists, each of whom grows increasingly chilling. But are they what they seem? And is any one of them capable of murder?

A darkly complex secret lies behind Melanie’s death – and its ultimate revelation will shock Vogel and his team to the core.


This taut thriller is filled with unexpected twists and turns leading up to a shocker of an ending
