The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this.... Years later a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed. Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint.

This book got off slow and did not think it would get me hooked but once I made the voice faster and gave it a chance. Did not take me long to live it. The story was dark and really got me guessing till the end on what was going to happen.

When they discover that the victim's daughter is missing as well, they start to fear for the safety of the whole family.... Two days later, as a nearby house is set on fire, and with the body count rising, Lottie and her team begin to unpick a web of secrets and lies, as the murders seem to link back to a case investigated by Lottie's father before he took his own life.

'You can’t investigate the baby, Inspector.’ Declan Cleary’s body has never been found, but everyone believes he was killed for informing on a friend over 30 years ago. Now the Commission for Location of Victims’ Remains is following a tip-off that he was buried on the isle of Islandmore. Instead, the dig uncovers a baby’s skeleton, and it doesn’t look like death by natural causes.

A young man is found in a riverside park, his head bashed in with a rock. The only clue to his identity is an admission stamp for the local gay club. DS Lucy Black is called in to investigate. As Lucy delves into the community, tensions begin to rise as the man's death draws the attention of the local gay rights group to a hate-speech pastor who, days earlier, had advocated the stoning of gay people and who refuses to retract his statement.

There are reasons why some of the most famous serial killers in the world have names that stick in our memories, send shivers up our spines, make us double-check to make sure the doors are locked at night, and maybe peek under the bed to be sure nothing is lurking there before we turn off the lights.
