Very intense and well done


If this is a prequel to the series then hold on to your hat. It will be an emotional roller coaster I think. Highly recommended.


An excellent writer of books that you can't put down!


JJ Marsh should be up there with the great writers of stories of detectives into whose lives we also see friends, families and subplots beyond the ordinary.


We all have some Black Dogs, Yellow Butterflies


If you are a fan of police procedurals you will enjoy this book. If you are a fan of women protagonists who may seem to have it all together but know everyone has a breaking point then you must read this prequel.
