Author(s): Stuart Neville
This is the gripping new DCI Serena Flanagan thriller from the bestselling author of Those We Left Behind. "Stuart Neville is...a crime-writing star." (Mark Billingham). DCI Serena Flanagan is asked to sign off the suicide of a severely disabled businessman. It should be an open and shut case. But something doesn't feel right, and soon the grieving widow's relationship with a local vicar sounds an alarm. With no evidence to back her up, however, have Serena's instincts led her down the wrong path? Under pressure at home and ignoring orders from her superiors, she must discover the truth. It's an investigation that may cost Serena her job - and her family. Praise for Stuart Neville: "Stuart Neville...never forgets the human heart that beats inside the bleakest darkness." (Val McDermid). "In the world of modern crime fiction, Stuart Neville is a supernova...I can't wait to see where he takes me next." (Dennis Lehane). "There's a chilling core to this pitch dark and powerful thriller." (Sunday Mirror).
