'Compelling, pacy, full of tension that had me gripped from the first page to the last' ANGELA MARSONS'Utterly gripping and hauntingly realistic, I raced through this in one sitting' LISA HALLThe unputdownable new crime novel, brimming with expert knowledge and authenticity, from an author with over twenty years' policing experience. After a late-night shooting takes place in a rough neighbourhood in East Rise, DI Harry Powell attends the scene.
The victim is not fatally injured, but clearly terrified he refuses to talk. When a tip leads Harry to suspect the victim is involved with human traffickers, he realises that countless lives are at risk and that the people he's after are more dangerous than he first thought. With time running out and their witness becoming more hostile, Harry must push his already-overstretched team to the limits to get the information he needs.
But for DI Harry Powell, solving the case might come at a terrible price . . . `A genuinely immersive read.
