A mesmerizing and thrilling novel—perfect for fans of Tana French and Stieg Larsson—that introduces a modern, unforgettable rookie cop whose past is as fascinating and as deadly as the crimes she investigates. SHE KNOWS WHAT IT’S LIKE. . . . At first, the murder scene appears sad, but not unusual: a young woman undone by drugs and prostitution, her six-­year-­old daughter dead alongside her. But then detectives find a strange piece of evidence in the squalid house: the platinum credit card of a very wealthy—and long dead—steel tycoon. What is a heroin-­addicted hooker doing with the credit card of a well-­known and powerful man who died months ago? This is the question that the most junior member of the investigative team, Detective Constable Fiona Griffiths, is assigned to answer. But D.­C. Griffiths is no ordinary cop. She’s earned a reputation at police headquarters in Cardiff, Wales, for being odd, for not picking up on social cues, for being a little overintense. And there’s that . . .

A marine engineer who tumbles off a cliff
path on a windy night. A burglary where everything taken was returned by
the thief. The suicide of a man in love with life.­An
accident, a mystery, an unexplained tragedy. And nothing at all to
connect them. Until, that is, Detective Constable Fiona Griffiths,
searching for something - anything - to take her mind off the tedious
job of evidence-­cataloguing she's been assigned to, starts to wonder if
all three incidents are not quite what they seem. It could just be her
imagination. After all, she'd be the first to admit that she isn't
exactly in the prime of psychological health right now, the darkness
she's held at bay ever since she joined the police force now lapping
dangerously at her door. But something tells her there are invisible
threads linking the crimes, and as she investigates further, she starts
to see the outlines of a conspiracy so unlikely and on such a vast
scale, that it takes her breath away. And that's . . .
