One Dark, Two Light, Hardback Book

One Dark, Two Light Hardback



'Tightly plotted, tense ... I was wholly drawn into the story' HARRIET TYCE. New Year's Eve, London. Outside the Hope & Glory pub, a man has been left to die.

A victim of extraordinary violence, he will never walk or speak again.

He remains in hospital, nameless, until criminal defence lawyer Sarah Kellerman walks onto his ward.

Sarah barely recognises the man she once worked with; he was honourable and kind.

What was he involved in? Who wanted him dead? But in her race to uncover the truth, Sarah comes to realise there are two men in her life that she never really knew at all...

From one of crime fiction's most compelling voices, One Dark, Two Light sees the personal and criminal collide, as Sarah reaches into the darkest corners to bring secrets into the light. 'Ruth's legal expertise shines through and Sarah Kellerman is a convincing and likeable heroine' CARA HUNTER. 'A deliciously gripping thriller with an ending I didn't see coming.

I raced through it. More, please!' EMILY KOCH. 'Furiously clever plotting and characters that leap off the page.

Family dynamics are explored with real humanity - a gripping read' RACHAEL BLOK.
