Publisher Description

'John Harvey is one of the all-time greats and remains one of my favourite writers.' IAN RANKIN
_____________________
Frank Elder's last case could be the one that breaks him for good.

The heavy manacles around the girl's wrists, perhaps not surprisingly, looked very much like the ones that had been found on the studio floor. For a moment, she had a vision of the chain to which they were attached being swung through the air, taking on force and speed before striking home. Then swung again.

When his estranged daughter Katherine appears on his doorstep, ex-Detective Frank Elder knows that something is wrong.

Katherine has long been troubled, and Elder has always felt powerless to help her. But now Katherine has begun to self-destruct; the breakdown of her affair with a controversial artist, known for his pornographic paintings, has sent her into a tailspin.

But when the artist is found murdered in his studio, suspicion falls on Katherine. The vultures are circling.

And as Elder struggles to protect his daughter and prove her innocence, the terrors of the past threaten them both once more...
