An excellent detective novel. The opening scene is superb, and sets up the story beautifully. Gripping, multi-layered and fresh. Terrific

A riveting new book, with such vivid characters

Holly Watt, author of To the Lions

I really loved this. Jonah Sheens is a well-drawn and likeable detective, and what I like about Gytha's writing is that she thinks outside the box

Gillian McAllister, bestelling author of How to Disappear

The first scene was brilliantly terrifying and the rest of the novel lived up to the strong opening - I had no idea who the killer was and it was superbly plotted. I loved the characters, too, especially the investigating team. I can see that this series is going to be a huge hit.
