A propulsive new thriller set in London featuring Detective Harbinder Kaur from the author of the No 1 bestselling Dr Ruth Galloway Mysteries. A murderer hides in plain sight – in the police.

DS Caitlin Fitzgerald has a secret – but it’s one she’s deleted from her memory. In the 1990s when she was at school, she and her friends killed a fellow pupil. Thirty years later, Caitlin is happily married and loves her job as a police officer.

One day her husband persuades her to go to a school reunion and another ex-pupil, Garfield Rice, is found dead, supposedly from a drug overdose. As Garfield was an eminent Labour MP and the investigation is high profile, it’s headed by Caitlin’s new boss, DI Harbinder Kaur. The trouble is, Caitlin can’t shake the feeling that one of her old friends has killed again.

Is Caitlin right, or was Garfield murdered by one of his political cronies? It’s in Caitlin’s interest to skew the investigation so that it looks like the latter and she seems to be succeeding.

Until someone else is killed…

Witty takes on life, love and relationships pepper the novel and make the plot all the more appealing
Belfast Telegraph
A cleverly plotted page-turner that's well up to Griffiths's vertiginously high standard
A tightly paced, character-driven book
Woman & Home
As ever, Griffiths skilfully blends complex plotting with a cast of wonderfully vivid characters
Mail on Sunday
Filled with Griffiths's trademark good humour, this is not only a well-researched police procedural but also a very comforting novel
Literary Review
Once again Elly Griffiths has created an ingenious mystery with hidden depths
The Times
The third outing for Detective Harbinder Kaur, this is an easy-to-read, rewarding mystery
This standalone thriller is a page-turner with an engaging cast of characters. It provides an enjoyable take on the classic killer-at-a-school-reunion, horror-movie trope, before delivering a jaw-dropping twist
Sunday Express
A typically twisty treat from Griffiths
