Robin Lyons is back in her hometown of Birmingham and now a DCI with Force Homicide, working directly under Samir, the man who broke her heart almost twenty years ago.
When a woman is found stabbed to death in a derelict factory and no one comes forward to identify the body, Robin and her team must not only hunt for the murderer, but also solve the mystery of who their victim might be.
As Robin and Samir come under pressure from their superiors, from the media and from far-right nationalists with a dangerous agenda, tensions in Robin’s own family threaten to reach breaking point. And when a cold case from decades ago begins to smoulder and another woman is found dead in similar circumstances, rumours of a serial killer begin to spread.
In order to get to the truth Robin will need to discover where loyalty ends and duty begins. But before she can trust, she is going to have to forgive – and that means grappling with some painful home truths.
Just from reading the first chapter you know it is going to be good. I haven’t read many of Lucie’s books before but I certainly will be catching up on them. This book was brilliant, you never really knew what was going to happen in the next chapter. The characters were great and engaging. There are some very clever twists and turns that make the story even more dramatic. I felt as though I was on a rollercoaster and didn’t want to get off, it was just too good. Robin works for the police and is back in her hometown, unfortunately now she has to work under her ex who broke her heart a long time ago. There is a lot going on with a number of interesting cases but can Robin work it all out before it is too late? What will happen? you will just have to read the book to find out.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
