DI Marnie Rome is up to her ears in a series of assaults, that seem random and without purpose, but she's sure they're linked.

On top of that, her childhood home is burgled, her tenants badly beaten, and all signs point to it being done by somebody who knows a lot about her. Could her step-brother, Stephen Keele, be behind it? He's currently behind bars for killing her parents, but something is taken from the house only she, and possibly he could have known about.  

When another assault goes bad, and it becomes a murder investigation, Marnie, assisted as ever by DS Noah Jake, have enough of their own personal issues bubbling away as a distraction. Marnie is haunted by what happened to her parents, and why she hadn't seen it coming. Noah worries constantly about his younger brother, Sol, who's mixed up in a local gang.  

As ever, you can't help but get swept along by some fabulous characters. Marnie and Noah bounce off each other perfectly. The supporting cast of Dan; Sol; Welland and Ed, to name but a few add enough layers to the world Sarah Hilary creates to drag you in and keep you there for the duration. Beautifully written and, as ever, looking forward to the next instalment in one of my favourite series around at the moment.
