The brilliant new thriller from the critically acclaimed author of Cut Throat and Time to Pay.
Sophie Bradford is pretty, blonde and an accomplished flirt. When her body is found dumped in a ditch on a lonely West Country road, Jamie Mullin is the prime suspect. He was her latest boyfriend and they’d had a very public row just before she disappeared.
Jamie protests his innocence but soon spirals into a breakdown fuelled by frustration, self-pity and drink, and it is left to his friend, Matt Shepherd, to fight his corner. Can he find the truth behind what appears to be a motiveless murder?
As Matt begins to uncover some dark secrets – secrets that someone will kill to protect – he soon learns that loyalty at all costs carries a lethal price.
