Two young boys stumble on a dead prostitute. She's on Sean Denton's patch. As Doncaster's youngest community support officer, he's already way out of his depth, but soon he's uncovering more than he's supposed to know.
Meanwhile Karen Friedman, professional mother of two, learns her brother has disappeared. She desperately needs to know he's safe, but once she starts looking, she discovers unexpected things about her own needs and desires.
Played out against a gritty landscape on the edge of a Northern town, Karen and Sean risk losing all they hold precious.
"Finding a new writer of decent police procedurals is a rare treat. Finding one with a new 'angle' is a rarity." (The Bookbag)
"Exciting, pacey, vivid and humane. Read it." (Lesley Glaister)
"This is a novel almost casually involved with crime. It gripped me from the first.... The descriptions of the setting, Yorkshire at its bleakest, the characters, were so subtly slipped in that I absorbed them subliminally.... I am now reading this excellent book again." (Shotsmag.co.uk)
"Hugely assured and gripping." (Mark Billingham)
