Discover a crime thriller that will have you gripped from the explosive start to one of the most shocking endings of the year.
On a lazy Sunday morning, Jenny Harris is shaken awake by her panic-stricken boyfriend, Joseph. Their baby daughter lies asleep on her chest. ‘We’ve got to go!’ Joseph screams.
In their hotel room, Jenny hurriedly wraps her tiny baby up. All their belongings are left behind. There’s no time. Joseph’s panic is contagious.
Jenny sprints with her family from the hotel. And it’s clear that they are being chased. Their pursuers are indiscriminate and they are deadly.
Her boyfriend falls, caught up in the carnage, but he manages to give her one last message: ‘RUN!’
Detective George Elms is investigating a separate crime: an elderly woman shot in the stomach during a robbery gone wrong. She is left for dead in her country kitchen where she stood firm against violent thieves.
What’s the link between the two incidents? And who will do anything to silence Jenny forever?
George’s only option is to make ground on both cases. And he must move fast. Because everyone is in deadly danger and time is running out.
Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Mark Billingham.
