“I loved every moment of this brilliant, mind-twisting thriller.” Elizabeth Haynes
She was once the best CSI in the business.
She put her trust in the evidence.
It betrayed her.
The uncanny abilities of London crime-scene specialist Kelly Jacks to coax evidence from the most unpromising of crime scenes once earned her the nickname The Blood Whisperer.
Then six years ago all that changed.
Kelly woke next to the butchered body of a man, the knife in her hands and no memory of what happened.
She trusted the evidence would prove her innocence.
Now released after serving her sentence for involuntary manslaughter, Kelly must try to piece her life back together. Shunned by colleagues and friends alike, the only work she can get is with the crime-scene cleaning firm run by her former mentor.
But old habits die hard.
And when her instincts tell her things are not what they appear at the routine clean-up of a suicide, she can’t help but ask questions somebody does not want answered. Plunged into the nightmare of being branded a killer once again. On the run from police, Russian thugs, and local gangsters, betrayed at every turn, she is fast running out of options.
But Kelly acquired a whole set of skills on the inside. Now street-smart and wary, can she use everything she’s learned to evade capture and stay alive long enough to clear her name?
