From the author of Missing, Presumed, a complicated detective investigates her most personal case yet.
Detective Manon Bradshaw is five months pregnant and has given up on finding romantic love. Instead, she is in hot pursuit of work-life balance and parked in a cold case corridor—the price she’s had to pay for a transfer back to Cambridgeshire. This is fine, she tells herself. She can devote herself to bringing up her adopted twelve-year-old son, Fly Dent, and the new baby. Fly needed a fresh start anyway—he was always being stopped and searched in London by officers who couldn’t see past the color of his skin.
Yet when a wealthy businessman is found stabbed close to police headquarters, Manon can’t help but sidle in on the briefing. She’s horrified to discover that the victim and the prime suspect are more closely linked to her than she could have imagined. And as the Cambridgeshire police force closes ranks against her, Manon is forced to contemplate the unthinkable: How well does she know her loved ones, and are they capable of murder?
