Publisher's Synopsis

Discover the second novel in the pulse-racing Paddy Meehan series, from award-winning author Denise Mina.

'Mina can chill your blood and break your heart in the same sentence' Mark Billingham

Journalist Paddy Meehan is called to a domestic dispute in a wealthy Glasgow suburb. The woman bleeding from a head injury doesn't want any help and the well-dressed man beside her assures Paddy that everything is fine. But when she is given a £50 note to keep quiet, she becomes suspicious.

The next morning, the woman is dead. Paddy has found the story she has been waiting for, yet she will lose all credibility if word gets out about her bribe. To make matters worse, the police who attended the scene are twisting the evidence. Only Paddy cares enough to pursue a dark truth that could make her career - or get her killed.

'Splendidly written... Magnificently readable' The Times
