Sarah Hilary won the 2015 Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year award with her debut, the 2014 Richard and Judy pick. She followed up with No Other Darkness, proclaimed 'riveting' by Lisa Gardner, 'utterly gripping' by Eva Dolan and 'truly mesmerising' by David Mark. Now DI Marnie Rome returns in her third novel.
You'll never be out of Harm's way.

Just as he gives shelter to the other lost girls who live in his house. He's the head of her new family. He's Harm.
DI Marnie Rome has faced many dangerous criminals, but she has never come up against a man like Harm. She thinks that she knows families, their secrets and their fault lines. But as she begins investigating the girl's disappearance, nothing can prepare her for what she's about to face. Because when Harm's family is threatened, everything tastes like fear....

"Intelligently and fluently written.... Sarah's onto a winning series." (Cath Staincliffe)
"Written with the verve and assurance of a future star." (Steven Dunne)
An avid crime and thriller reader. Prefer Scandinavian or British crime books. Particularly like Jo Nesbo and Stephen Leather
Best book I've listened to in ages, brilliantly written, great story and well narrated - Sarah Hillary is amazing
I have just rediscovered my love for reading, cardmaking is my main hobby, I am curious and love the odd glass of merlot with friends
Having read books one and two and really enjoying them, I wondered whether this book Would be as enjoyable, well I was wrong, Sarah once again kept the main characters but there are undertones from the two previous books mainly to do with Di Marnie Rome's character and her past namely Stephen the young man who committed a horrific crime that touched Marnie's life personally. I will say no more well worth reading the books in order. I like the way Marnie's character grows as a person in her job and in particular her relationship with her colleague Sergeant DS Jake they work so well as a team. My only qualm was that I was time short as I would have liked to have completed this book in one sitting. If you like thrillers then this book is for you.
Spend my time cycling, reading, listening to audiobooks and music, baking and running about after 3 grown up kids, cats and chickens.
Another great addition to this series. Really interesting well developed story. Brilliant narration. Roll on book 4.
This seemed to go on and on and on, and could have lost a few chapters. It's not as good as previous books. DI Rome is just a bit boring I'm afraid!
