'If you love great thrillers, you'll love Candice Fox!' Lee Child

If Detective Frank Bennett tries hard enough, he can sometimes forget that Eden Archer, his partner in the Homicide Department, is also a moonlighting serial killer …

Thankfully their latest case is proving a good distraction. For, on the city's rain-soaked running tracks, a predator is lurking.

Meanwhile Frank’s new girlfriend Imogen is determined to solve the disappearance of the two young Tanner children over twenty years earlier. But the trail is leading to Eden’s door.

And asking too many questions about Eden Archer can get you buried as deep as her past …
