A tense and compelling crime thriller from the two-time winner of the THEAKSTONS OLD PECULIER CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR AWARD.

Then the police knock at her door with the news that her former lover, Terry, has been found in a ditch, shot through the head. Even though they'd split up months before, Paddy is down as the next of kin, and has been left everything, including a box of notebooks...

As Paddy tries to uncover what it was Terry wanted her to discover, it soon becomes clear that he was about to expose a secret. A secret worth killing for. And Paddy is next in line...
