She's made a deal with a devil... THE PACT

She's made a deal with a devil... THE PACT
____________

Eve Weston, daughter of recently deceased con man Alexander Weston, knows a good deal when she sees it - and this one doesn't even come close. But if she doesn't want her vulnerable brother Terry being beaten to a pulp in jail, she can't afford to be fussy.

In desperation Eve turns to another prisoner, a dangerous-seeming individual called Martin Cavelli. They make a secret pact: if Cavelli protects Terry then she will pay whatever it costs.

But making a deal with the Devil comes at a price, and after a break-in and a viscous assault Eve begins to question her choice. It seems Cavelli is leading her straight into Hell, and now it's not only her brother's life on the line . . .

Paris Murphy, half-Irish, half-Lebanese, is extremely good at her job, though far less successful in her private life, which is a mess: she's got an on/off marriage to an ER doctor, a looming affair with a colleague in the forensic department and a mother who always calls at the worst possible moment. Tracking down killers is a far more attractive proposition than tidying up her own affairs and her latest investigation is gripping.The murder of a prostitute in St Paul's is the latest in a series of killings, and the police are sure they know who they are after - a successful plastic surgeon, scion of a powerful local family - and it is up to Paris and her partner, Gabe, to prove their case. But hard evidence is hard to come by, until Paris herself attracts the killer's attention ...

The attack will be swift and silent, a lesson in efficiency. If you're going to do a job, you have to do it properly. It's a satisfying feeling having everything in place. I know there's always room for error, but careful planning goes a long way towards a successful outcome. The devil, as they say, is in the detail. Ava Gold is in trouble. Holly is still missing, there are now two dead bodies, and Chris Street is in the frame for at least one of those murders. Then there are the anonymous notes she keeps receiving, not to mention that Lee Bullen won't leave her alone. She knows that she should tell the police what she knows about Holly, but there's so much going on she doesn't know what to deal with first. And that means she's too distracted to notice that the most dangerous threat is getting closer and closer . . .The final part of The Payment is also available to download now!Read what people are saying about Roberta Kray: 'Once you start to read you can't put it down' 'Full of twists and turns' 'Love this writer, great read' 'Brilliant and gripping from beginning to end'
