'A gifted and knowledgeable writer . . . engaging and readable' Financial Times

The Cotswold village of Upper Benbury is buzzing with rumour and gossip. The body of a young gipsy girl has been found in a discarded freezer.

A local newshound, hot on the trail of the story, persuades crime writer Melissa Craig to accompany him to the gipsy encampment. Then Melissa learns that members of the victim's family are planning their own brand of justice for the outsider who lured their girl away - and her determination to track down and warn the Romanys' intended victim lands her in grave danger, exposing dark secrets in unexpected places.

'Fresh and lively . . . an enjoyable read with a gratifying array of twists' Shots Magazine
