October 1987: the morning after the Great Storm. Fifteen-year-old Tania Mills walks out her front door and disappears. Twenty-seven years later her mother still prays for her return. DS Sarah Collins in the Met’s Homicide Command is determined to find out what happened, but is soon pulled into a shocking new case and must once again work with a troubled young police officer from her past, Lizzie Griffiths.
PC Lizzie Griffiths, now a training detective, is working in the Domestic Violence Unit, known by cops as the ‘murder prevention squad’. Called to an incident of domestic violence, she encounters a vicious, volatile man – and a woman too frightened to ask for help. Soon Lizzie finds herself drawn into the centre of the investigation as she fights to protect a mother and daughter in peril.
As both cases unfold, Sarah and Lizzie must survive the dangerous territory where love and violence meet.
Sensational... A brilliant, high-octane crime novel, ringing with the hard-earned wisdom of a former cop.Tony Parsons
A terrific thriller, it pulls off that near-impossible trick of being not just psychologically acute and beautifully written but rivetingly plotted too. Packed with convincing detail and a full cast of excellent characters it is edge of the seat stuff: Prime Suspect rebooted.Christobel Kent
An absorbing debut... The author vividly re-creates the everyday experience of uniformed police... The result is a complex novel that offers rare insights into how the police operate.
