Summary

The widow is a cop. Forget the law, she wants revenge.

Detective Inspector Stella Cole was a rising star in London’s Metropolitan Police. Then a hit-and-run driver killed her husband, Richard, a human rights lawyer. Grief drove her to booze and pills. Back at work after a year’s compassionate leave, Stella secretly re-investigates his death and begins to suspect a cover-up. Freelance journalist Vicky Riley was working with Richard to expose corruption buried deep inside the legal system. Unaware that powerful people are out to stop her, she contacts Stella.

Vicky’s research confirms Stella’s worst fears. The people who should be upholding the law are turning it on its head.

Stella thinks she’s closing in on the truth. Then a horrific discovery threatens her very sanity. What began as a search for justice is now a raging thirst for revenge.

Engaging story brought to life by the narrator.

Interesting thriller with a storyline that gradually unpacks as it runs along and takes you with it. Clever plot cleverly narrated.

Stick with it!

I loved the story but found the narration cringeworthy, especially when reading "the other voices.' It sounded like it was recorded in the narrator's bathroom with every day noises heard in the background. However I stuck with it and have just finished the third book. what a big improvement! not only the ongoing story but the narration. looking forward to hearing the forth book.

A One D.I. Anti Corruption Force

A refreshing thriller with plenty of well researched detail and a convincing fast pace. I have to say that I enjoyed this novel more than the two I have so far read from the Gabriel Wolfe series by the same author.

Great story.. horrible narration

I really liked the story, and would have throughly enjoyed reading the book, however the narration was dreadful... awful sound quality and shocking attempt at ‘acting’ ruined the overall experience... will buy the paperback for the next one ..

WOW!!!! POWERFUL EMOTIONS!!!

I can truly say that this story is as powerful as any that I've read or listened to in many years. As a Mother, I could probably follow in this character's footsteps! Andy Maslen, this is a first of your novels for me but it certainly won't be the last. What a talented author! Helen Moore did an extraordinary job in bringing these characters to life. Excellent job by the Andy Maslen/Helen E. Moore duo!
