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

Most police duos run on trust, loyalty and the desire to see killers in court. But Detective Frank Bennett's partner, the enigmatic Eden Archer, has nothing to offer him but darkness and danger.

Eden doesn't mind catching killers – but it's not in the courthouse where her justice is served.

Now she is about to head undercover and it’s up to Frank to watch over her.

However, as the darkness around Eden gathers, Frank begins to ask himself: is Eden saving lives, or taking them?
