How could your good friend become your worst enemy?

I lost my child because of you, my only child.

Eileen and Heather have always looked out for each other. But two years ago Eileen lost her son and she blames Heather and her family for the tragic loss.

And I want you to know how that feels.

Now she wants Heather and her daughter to suffer in the same way.

Sergeant Claire Boyle is caught in the crossfire – but she has her own child to think about now.

A perfectly engineered crime novel where slow-burning grievances lead to explosive actions. Crowley is brilliant at creating gripping scenarios that make your heart beat faster
Jane Casey, author of the DS Maeve Kerrigan series
Does not disappoint for a second . . . Brilliantly plotted and structured, I gasped aloud as I watched the unfolding story of childhood pals becoming mortal enemies . . . This is a corker of a book, compellingly readable, intriguing and hugely enjoyable
Liz Nugent, author of Lying in Wait
Extremely well-structured and brilliantly paced . . . cements Sinead Crowley's status as one of Ireland's best crime writers

So enjoyable. Great characterisation, social commentary and a tense, grippy plot. An excellent read
Marian Keyes
