It takes a strong woman to be able to watch someone die.
Brigid Quinn is tough, determined, steely and sharper than sharp. As an ex-agent of the FBI, she has seen it all - and survived. But nothing can cut her closer to the bone than family....
When Brigid gets a call from her mother saying her father is in hospital with pneumonia, she decides to check on her former colleague Laura Coleman, who is living nearby. Having saved Brigid's life, Laura is now working on an innocence project, investigating cold cases. And one in particular seems to have caught her attention. Fifteen years before, Marcus Creighton was accused of killing his wife and three children. Now the state governor has signed the warrant for his execution. Worried that her friend is getting in too deep, Brigid promises to help. But what if her instincts are betraying her? If she can't even trust her memories of her own childhood, how can she make a call on some stranger's story that took place over 15 years before?
"A crime novel that transcends the genre - a twisting, high-stakes story with characters so real and so recognizably human, that it breaks your heart a little. Brilliant." (Shari Lapena, author of
The Couple Next Door)
"Brilliant, intricate, authentic and sometimes raw, this is a masterfully written story that'll quicken your pulse and challenge the grey matter too. Brigid Quinn is my new favourite female investigator. Loved it!" (Gilly Macmillan)
