By Anne Randall

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The gritty fourth novel in the award-winning Wheeler and Ross series.

Secrets.
What secrets are hidden at the heart of family life?
Deceit.
The lies we tell ourselves are often more dangerous than the truth.

When forty-one-year-old Sarah Price is reported missing after having arranged a date with a man she met on the internet, her family are distraught.

Meanwhile, Glasgow based Detective Inspectors Kat Wheeler and Steven Ross attend the scene of a murder. Michael O'Donnell, a widower and devoted stay-at-home dad to his severely disabled daughter, Paula, has been brutally killed. And Paula, who is vulnerable and dependent on daily medication, is missing.

As Wheeler and Ross race to find Michael's killer and Paula's abductor, they are drawn into a tangled web of deceit. Soon they come to realise that the killer is watching them. And is always one step ahead...
