Publisher Description

Cora is a character you won’t forget.’ Steve Cavanagh, author of The Devil’s Advocate

When a body is discovered at an abandoned Suffolk farm, DS Rob Minshull and the squad believes it’s the latest casualty of the drugs war terrorising rural communities. But when the victim is identified as a well-respected local teacher, the case is thrown wide open.

While they hunt the murderer, the South Suffolk CID team face a new threat. A brutal vigilante group dispensing their own twisted justice puts the investigation in grave danger, as well as the detectives.

Educational psychologist, Dr Cora Lael, is called in to work with Lottie Arundel, a troubled teen who stopped speaking a year ago.

As Cora enters Lottie’s world, it seems that the teen’s silence might hold the key to the case. But as Cora and Rob work together to find a vicious killer, it’s clear that uncovering Lottie’s secrets will take Cora and Rob into the most dangerous of places – where the price to pay for the truth might be death…

Flippin Brilliant 🤩

A truly remarkable book, twists and turns and just when you think you’re piecing it all together it delivers another curveball. Brilliantly written, and a real reminder that too many people are silenced by their fear of what others may judge them on. A must read for all to remind us that everyone’s voice and story is important.
