International Bestselling Author
London's Detective Chief Inspector Anna Travis must decide where her loyalties lie in this masterful tale of suspense from the award-winning, international bestselling author of the Prime Suspect series—who joins Sophie Hannah, Ruth Rendell, Kate Atkinson, and Ian Rankin as one of Britain's finest contemporary crime writers.
Six months ago, London nightclub owner Josh Reynolds was found dead. It was ruled a suicide; the police investigation was closed. Then a young man awaiting trial for armed robbery tells his guards that Reynolds was murdered . . . and that he has information to share.
As part of an exchange between the Metropolitan Police and the FBI, DCI Anna Travis is scheduled to leave for training at the Academy in Quantico. But her boss asks her to review the case before she goes, alongside senior FBI agent and crime-scene expert Jessie Dewar.
The American's brash manner quickly ruffles feathers throughout the Met, and what should have been a simple matter becomes a political powder keg when the competence of the original investigation team is challenged. Suddenly, Anna is faced with a dangerous choice. Will she close ranks to protect her colleagues, or push to find the truth no matter the consequences?
