Can we trust the stories we tell ourselves about the past? This is the question tough ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn must ask herself when a cold case comes close to home.
'Wow! Chilling, smart, funny, and what a voice she has' Gillian Flynn
'A twisting, high-stakes story . . . Brilliant' Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door
Former FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen it all, and survived. But nothing can cut her closer to the bone than family...
When her father falls ill, Brigid returns to Florida. There, she meets up with former colleague Laura Coleman. Laura once saved Brigid's life, but now is working on an 'innocence project', investigating cold cases, and one in particular has caught her attention. Marcus Creighton was convicted of murdering his family fifteen years before, and has been sentenced to death.
Worried that her friend is getting in too deep, and that there is more to this case than meets the eye, Brigid promises to help. But what if her instincts are betraying her?
Wow! An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart, funny, and what a voice she has
Blown away. What else can I tell you? Brigid Quinn is a heroine to cheer for, and Masterman writes like an angel who has seen far too many ungodly things
A crime novel that transcends the genre - a twisting, high-stakes story with characters so real and so recognizably human, that it breaks your heart a little. Brilliant - Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door
Brilliant, intricate, authentic and sometimes raw, this is a masterfully written story that'll quicken your pulse and challenge the grey matter too. Brigid Quinn is my new favourite female investigator. Loved it!
