  • £P.O.R.

Reissue of Roberta Kray's gritty novel, along with The Pact and The Debt

Private investigator Harry Lind doesn't believe in ghosts and so doesn't think twice about the ramblings of a drunken old hack. Little Grace Harper went missing over twenty years ago and missing girls can't just reappear - or can they?

It takes a brutal murder to make him think again. Reporter Jess Vaughan is convinced Grace is still alive, and as she and Harry begin to unravel an age-old web of deceit and betrayal their discoveries put them on a collision course with Jimmy Keppell, one of London's most notorious gangsters. It seems Jess and Harry's search for the truth could cost them their lives.

An anonymous phone call was all it took to alert the police to a body at The Palace. Now, eighteen years later, Johnny Frank is coming out of jail with only one thing on his mind - to kill the man who put him there. But first he's going to make him suffer. Jim Buckley has got everything he doesn't: a marriage, kids, a future. Moving in on his life, Johnny subtly begins to spread rumour and suspicion. Dividing husband and wife, father and son, he sets about his intention of destroying the family from inside out. But his plans soon go dramatically awry. As the past returns to haunt him, a vicious murder and kidnap force him back on to the streets of London. He could choose to disappear if it wasn't for Simone. Buckley's provocative daughter-in-law has got under his skin - and with her husband's life in the balance it seems she may be willing to do just about anything to persuade Johnny to help her...
