‘Detective Thomas, we’ve brought your sister in for questioning. She’s our prime suspect.’
Detective Megan Thomas used to work undercover, in constant danger, unsure who to trust. Now she’s moved to the remote, wild coast of Devon to be with her family and learn to live without fear. At last, she can remember why she joined the police – to get justice and protect the innocent. But when her sister Debbie finds the broken body of local businessman Greg Porter, his hand reaching out as if to beg, Megan’s peace is shattered…
Porter’s wife and children don’t seem to care much about their loss, and everyone in their small seaside town knows his business dealings were shady. So Megan can’t understand why her colleague Jim Collins is so determined to prove Debbie did it. And why is Debbie acting so suspiciously? When she learns the secret Debbie’s hiding – a secret that could tear her family apart – suddenly Megan is the one with doubts. But is her beloved sister really capable of murder?
Megan’s boss won’t allow her to investigate, leaving Megan on the sidelines. Caught between her job and her family, Megan doesn’t know where to turn. She’s desperate to save her sister, but how far is she willing to go?
Then a surprise confession takes the case into even darker waters. Everyone who knew Porter seems to have a reason to lie – even some of the cops on Megan’s team. The only way Megan can find the truth is to risk everything by confronting a killer. But without knowing who to trust, she can’t be sure she’ll make it out alive…
Fans of Ann Cleeves, Angela Marsons and Mari Hannah will be hooked by this incredibly gripping mystery thriller.
