You can’t run from the truth…
Cassie McNamara was found guilty of the murder of her husband, Paul Cavellini, but she has always protested her innocence. Upon her release, she hires local journalist, Dee Doran, to prove she was wrongfully convicted.
Cassie and Paul’s young daughter, Grace, was adopted by Paul’s family. When eighteen-year-old Grace goes missing and her body is found, all eyes turn to Cassie as the prime suspect in her daughter’s death. Then, Cassie, just like Grace, disappears.
Left behind to investigate, Dee must work to find the truth behind Grace and Paul's deaths, because someone is keeping secrets. They’ve killed before, they’ll do it again if they have to.
A gripping crime thriller you won't be able to put down, perfect for fans of Alex Marwood and Fiona Barton.
