A city that’s no longer safe…

An anonymous vigilante stalks the streets of Edinburgh. As his behaviour escalates, the police are at a loss – they can find no clues to his identity, and no trace of his whereabouts. A detective in the path of danger… DI Helen Birch has been told to stay away from the case – but she’s never been one to play by the rules.

When her colleague Amy comes to her asking for help, DI Birch finds it impossible to resist the challenge – and soon, her life is on the line. Will she crack the case before it breaks her? Or has she finally met her match? A gripping crime thriller for fans of Susie Steiner, Elly Griffiths and Val McDermid – guaranteed to keep you up all night…
