Publisher Description

The second gripping thriller in the Kate Brannigan series, from No.1 Sunday Times bestseller Val McDermid.

‘No one can plot or tell a story like McDermid’ Express

PI Kate Brannigan is hired to investigate a series of strange financial scams across Manchester. At first it looks like a discrepancy with the paperwork, but the deeper Kate digs, the murkier the case becomes.

Before long she’s up to her neck in crooked land deals – and murder – and her own life is on the line…

Reviews

‘A satisfying range of villains, Manchester and its environs turn deeply sinister and Brannigan toughs and wisecracks her way to a solution.’ The Times
