“Naomi, what is it?”
She whisked back to face Eva. “There’s somebody in the house… ”
Eva is horrified when she witnesses an attack on her best friend. She calls an ambulance and forces herself to flee Hampton, fearing for her own safety. DCI Helen Lavery leads the investigation into the murder. With no leads, no further witnesses and no sign of forced entry, the murder enquiry begins.
Slowly, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. But as Helen inches towards solving the case, her past becomes caught up in her present.
Someone is after them both. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want. And as the net starts to close around them, can Helen escape her own demons as well as helping Eva to escape hers?

“The criminal world is always closer than you think… Tense and cop-savvy.” Phil Rickman
“My kind of book. Jane Isaac writes with real confidence and attention to detail. An enjoyable and authentic British police procedural.” Mari Hannah
“The thing I love most about these stories is the realistic twist – Helen Lavery is everywoman, single mother to two teenagers, juggling home life and work life and often failing to manage well… she is
intelligent, creative, flawed in the way we all are and therefore there is an absolute belief as you are reading in everything she is doing.” Liz Loves Books
