Quite a good police procedural where the atmosphere was quite tension-filled with a stabbing of a young girl. This was my second book by author Mel Sherrat, and I found it quite immersive, captured into the depths.
Erin and Molly were best friends and so also their parents. When Erin was stabbed in a supposedly random mugging, the parents of both girls along with Molly were devastated. DS Grace Allendale started her investigation.
A powerful piece of writing by the author where the prose showed me the investigation conducted by Grace along with the life of the young girl, leading to the days of her her death. Emotions were absorbed into the words where Grace too was affected.
The story clutched me by the throat with the power of its words. There were quite a few harrowing scenes written in. The pace was fast and kept me hooked on to my kindle. I read this in one sitting.
Twists and turns along with a nail biting finish made this a rocking read. Whew.
When sixteen-year-old Erin Ellis is attacked, she dies in the arms of her best friend Molly, just metres from her home. Molly is the surviving girl but says she easily could have been the victim – it was a random mugging gone wrong.
With inconclusive evidence, DS Grace Allendale must dig deep within the tight-knit Stoke community for leads. And she soon finds that someone had a motive to kill Erin.
As the investigation unfolds, Grace is reminded of a horrifying case she worked on earlier in her career.
Is the past coming back to haunt her? And can she push through her fear to catch Erin’s killer before it’s too late?
