Old Case. New Rules... An utterly compelling crime debut, shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger and longlisted for the CWA John Creasey Dagger 2013
After a long and murky career with the FBI, Brigid Quinn is trying to move on. She's got a nice house. Dogs. A husband who knows nothing of her past. But the abduction and murder of a young female colleague still haunts her.
So when the girl's body is finally found, and a man confesses to the murder, Brigid is desperate for answers. Yet the more she learns, the more convinced she is that they have the wrong man. Following leads that the Bureau ignored, she's propelled straight into the path of a ruthless serial killer. One who has evaded the law for decades, and will stop at nothing to keep her quiet...
But Brigid Quinn is a woman to be reckoned with.
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
Wow! An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart, funny, and what a voice she has
Brigid . . . is a character who'll be more than welcome if Ms. Masterman turns her scorching debut into a running series . . . Actresses of a certain age ought to welcome Brigid too. It's rare when such a hot new 59-year-old "granny" comes along. - NEW YORK TIMES
