Detective Inspector Denis Hamilton is haunted when the suspicious death of a teenage girl triggers suppressed memories. With a stalker targeting vulnerable women in Central London, and his team rapidly diminishing, Hamilton must conquer his emotions before another family is destroyed.

In a sleepy town in Hertfordshire, Katy has worked hard to rebuild her life after leaving behind everything she knew. But when her past catches up with her, and her young son’s life is threatened, Katy must admit her true identity if she has any hope of surviving.

A home should be a safe place, shouldn’t it? But sometimes it is hard to know who you can trust…

London’s murder investigations team returns in the second novel from the bestselling author of In the Shadows.


OMG I started reading and stopped, I had to think what would I do? If that was me, what would I do? Options were flying round in my head, all the scenarios, no time to think, what are the chances of surviving, my son had to survive. I chose, it doesn’t matter about me, only my son, his best option, best chance for him to live………….. or will there only ever be the wrong choice? I had to know.

What an opening, Tara Lyons made all my mothering instincts come to life and I knew then that she would toy with every emotion that I have before I finished this book. Not only did she manage to floor me but also poor D.I. Denis Hamilton too, when he is called to a murder scene that reminds him of a personal tragedy in his own life. Then another call another murder.   As the cases are mounting and for an accumulation of other reasons, staff shortages become a major concern, so they divide what is left of the team to cover the tragedies that are unfolding at an alarming rate.

This is a truly wicked book with a story that keeps you guessing as to why these murders are taking places and what the link between them could be. I took quickly  to what was a diminishing team of detectives, with the latest new comer Rocky making himself an asset very quickly. It is a book that pulls at the heart strings but there is nothing descriptive that is upsetting, only your own imagination does that. Would I recommend this book? Most definitely!
