Finn Fitzpatrick barely knows Mandy Breslin from the firm where they both work. Mandy moves in the privileged world of the senior partners’ clique. Finn keeps to herself.
But Mandy has secrets and, as Finn is drawn deeper into her dead colleague’s life, she soon discovers that Mandy’s not the only one at the firm hiding something.
As Finn uncovers a web of lies that comes very close to home, she quickly realises that Mandy’s killer might be nearer than she thinks. Who wanted Mandy dead? And who can Finn turn to, when she can’t trust anyone?
