This was such a joy to listen to. Merritt captures the characters beautifully and tells a story which kept me guessing right up until the end. Impressive work for a young writer!

It’s been five years since Detective Zac Boateng’s daughter was murdered, and her killer was never found. Now Zac is back working for the Metropolitan Police and is more determined than ever to bring the city’s killers to justice. When a man is found brutally murdered in a rundown south London shop, all fingers point to the highly intelligent and manipulative Darian Wallace. Two years ago, the victim helped send him to prison. And he’s just been released.
