Meanwhile, Senior FBI Agent, Jessie Dewar, crime scene expert, is seconded to Anna's team as part of her research.
Dewar's brash manner soon ruffles feathers among the MET, and what should have been a simple case of tying up loose ends becomes a political nightmare as the competence of the original investigation team is questioned.

Six month ago Josh Reynolds was found dead. His death was ruled a suicide and the case was closed. A young man, awaiting trial for armed robbery, tells his guards that Reynolds was murdered and that he has information to share. DCI Anna Travis is scheduled to leave for training at Quantico, as part of an exchange between the Met and the FBI. But first she got to review the case. It should have been a simple matter of tying up loose ends but it turns out to be a political powder keg.This 500 page book hooked me from the first page. The only problems I had with it was the Fitzpatrick storyline, which was a continuation from the previous Anna Travis book. Having not read the previous book I was a little lost where that storyline was concerned. I also thought that 500 pages was a bit too long for this book. At the end I found myself skipping paragraphs when the author kept going over the same clues a number of times. The two problems I had did not stop me from finishing and enjoying this book.I won this book from Goodreads.
