Summary

The last time Maureen O'Donnell saw Ann Harris, she was nursing a couple of broken ribs and reeking of alcohol at the women's shelter. Now Ann has turned up dead hundreds of miles away, in London.

Eager to escape some family difficulties of her own, Maureen travels to London to determine the circumstances of Ann's brutal death. In the seedy underworld of criminal exiles and dangerous drug lords, Maureen tries to piece together the horror of Ann's last days - and to save herself from a similarly ugly fate. The suspense ratchets up as, with visceral shock and grim wit, Denise Mina secures her place among the top-ranking writers of crime fiction today.

A story that draws you in.

DM returns to her heroin and gives one another taste of gritty family life of people who manage to get buy when weaker people would not. And all wrapped around a mystery. Totally believable characters.

Another hit from Denise Mina

I loved this book, couldn't wait for the next chapter. Great how it carried on from the previous book. The excellent narration brought the story to life, keeping the listener engaged all the time. Can't wait for the next novel from this author.

Maureen o donnell is brilliant!

Just wanted to say that the narration of the various characters was top notch.
Story was a bit mixed up in places - probably clearer in just reading the book.
Have become a lifelong Denise Mina fan
