Brigid Quinn has been shot at, stabbed in the spleen with a nail file and used as serial-killer bait. But she’s always been able to trust her instincts and her FBI-training to help her out of danger.

Now, retired from the Bureau and investigating the tragic death of a neighbour’s teenage son, Brigid starts to suffer unexplained bouts of paranoia, hallucination and memory loss. And for the first time in her life, she feels vulnerable.

But with a mass poisoning at the church, a dead man found in town and a grieving family convinced their son’s death wasn’t an accident, Brigid needs to put the pieces together – fast. Because evil has entered her life once more, and it’s much closer than she thinks . . .

Reviews

Ms. Masterman once again shows herself to be an expert manipulator of readers' expectations.
NEW YORK TIMES
Resourceful, direct, and determined - especially in the face of pure, murderous evil - in her second outing, Brigid Quinn remains a fun force to be reckoned with.
BOSTON GLOBE
Addictive, intriguing, terrifying: the stunning new thriller starring Brigid Quinn.
TANGLED WEB
"With telling observations on the human condition, the nature of love and the corruption of greed, this is simply superb."
PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH
A highly engaging blend of psychological thriller and Miss Marple-like whodunit... Her [Masterman's] strength's are polished prose and her beguiling heroine, an usually complicated sleuth married to a philosopher.
SUNDAY TIMES
