What if the killer she's hunting turns out to be the woman she's falling for? A gripping debut thriller in a unique location, from a major new talent in Scottish crime - pre-order now to read before anyone else!

'A significant crime debut. Authoritatively authentic, irresistibly pacey and nerve-shreddingly tense' Chris Brookmyre


Just because the most dangerous criminals in society are caught and locked up, doesn’t mean they stop committing crime.

That’s where Kennedy Allardyce comes in – monitoring not just the prisoners, but also the staff.

And she’s just stumbled across her most dangerous foe yet – rumours of a corrupt guard with lethal influence. And what’s worst, it seems they’ve already realised Kennedy is on their tail.

At least one thing is giving her joy – a blossoming relationship with Molly, a beautiful, enigmatic new guard.

Wouldn’t it be awful if the killer she’s hunting turned out to be the woman she’s falling for?
