About the Book

MEET DETECTIVE INSPECTOR JEMIMA HUXLEY IN THIS BRILLIANT NEW CRIME SERIES FULL OF STUNNING TWISTS.

Please note this book was previously published as Sole Survivor.

A family brutally attacked in their own home. One survivor. A troubled female detective who must uncover the truth.

The call comes through on DI Jemima Huxley’s day off. A family of five brutally attacked in their own home. Bradley and Sally Rathbone and their teenage niece and nephew are dead. Only fourteen-year-old Millie survives, found in a broken heap at the bottom of the stairs.

It’s an unlikely crime scene: a comfortable five-bedroom property in one of Cardiff’s most exclusive suburbs. Jemima quickly deduces this was no random burglary gone wrong. These killings were vicious, personal — and carefully planned. But why would someone target an ordinary family going about their everyday business?

With Millie in a coma and unable to help with enquiries, it’s up to Jemima and her team to unmask the killer.

And could they be waiting to strike again . . . ?

Readers of Simon McCleave, Rachel McLean, Ann Cleeves, Helen H. Durrant, Joy Ellis, Angela Marsons, L.J. Ross, J.M. Dalgliesh, Mark Edwards and Lynda La Plante will love Gaynor Torrance’s feisty and flawed protagonist DI Jemima Huxley.
