Don't miss this 'wonderfully creepy experience' (Upcoming4.me) by the Number One bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes. Dr Thomas Bond is back, but this time the trial of murders leads straight to his front door.

From the Number One bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes. Dr Thomas Bond is back, but this time the trial of murders leads straight to his front door.

Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, is still recovering from the events of the previous year when Jack the Ripper haunted the streets of London - and a more malign enemy hid in his shadow. Bond and the others who worked on the gruesome case are still stalked by its legacies, both psychological and tangible.

But now the bodies of children are being pulled from the Thames . . . and Bond is about to become inextricably linked with an uncanny, undying enemy.

'Few writers blend mystery and the supernatural as well as Sarah Pinborough, but there are none who do it better. Quite, quite brilliant' John Connolly
