A body is found and questions must be answered – the conspiracy runs right to the top . . .

Miri Goldstein was a party girl – gregarious, beautiful, dangerous. Now that she’s dead, some are able to breathe more easily. But the grave is not always good at keeping secrets and for those whose lives she touched, the truth is going to catch up with them.

When pathologist Harriet Hitchin is assigned to the Goldstein corpse, she’s not looking to rock the boat – she’s made enough mistakes in her career and now she’s looking for the quiet life – but when the facts point not just to the murky Westminster underworld, but right to the corridors of power, this time she can’t look the other way.

It’s a case that will play mind games with all who come near – where the pleasures of the flesh meet our darkest desires for control, release and forgiveness. And if answers only come at the cost of confronting our inner demons, will anyone truly face their fears?

An electric thriller full of secrets, lies and hidden identities in this gripping thriller from Brooke Magnanti.

Hugely impressive . . . Brooke writes the kind of women we want to see in crime fiction
Russel McLean
Brooke uses her professional know-how to detail shockingly gruesome scenes at the morgue in a mystery that begins with a decomposing body in a bag in a Hebridean loch but spins a web of real-life strands of political chicanery, greed and lies galore.

A helter-skelter of a book
Magnanti's writing is lively and entertaining. When her victims are laid out on that slab, her unspeakably detailed descriptions are good enough to put the wind up Patricia Cornwell.
