Some mistakes you live with. Others you die for.
When the body of a young woman is found in the boot of an abandoned car near the Southampton Docks, Detective Kate Matthews is ordered to stay well away from the scene.
Exactly a year ago, Amy, a junior detective on Kate’s team, was murdered when she was sent undercover to catch a serial killer targeting young girls. Kate never forgave herself for letting the killer slip through her fingers and her team are worried this coincidence might push her over the edge.
When another girl’s body with similar bruising around the neck is uncovered days later, Kate launches an investigation of her own, determined to connect new evidence to the old to catch this monster before more innocent lives are taken…
Mysterious sympathy cards left with the families of the victims finally lead Kate to the twisted individual from her past. But if she’s found the killer, why does the body count keep rising?
An absolutely heart-stopping crime thriller that will have you sleeping with the lights on. Perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, James Patterson and M.J. Arlidge.

The beginning of this novel showed promise, but once the main character of Kate was revealed I found her to be so self-absorbed, manipulative and obsessive that I couldn’t relate to her. For someone who was supposed to be so intuitive she missed a hell of a lot of cues. When she allows a civilian into her investigation I was just dumbfounded; add irresponsible and unprofessional to her repertoire of character flaws. The ending was so transparent after the introduction of the civilian I wound up skimming through to the end. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone who enjoys a good British detective story.
