When Gabrielle Ash's wife and kids were kidnapped four years ago by Somali pirates, his life spiraled out of control. He left his job working for the British government and moved to a small town where he descended into near madness. But with the help of his dog, Patience, and his friendship with young police officer Hazel Best, his focus returned. When he discovers that his wife is still alive, Ash is once again filled with hope and fear. Hope that he has another chance to find her and their two young sons; fear that, in trying, he may bring about their deaths.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Damaged Ash and chipper Hazel are a compelling-enough duo to keep readers turning pages. Ash’s talking dog, Patience, will delight animal lovers, and a subplot involving a homeless teen provides a heartwarming contrast to Ash’s conniving wife.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “After a cliff-hanger ending in Perfect Sins, Bannister’s third series outing finds police officer Hazel Best and her friend Gabriel Ash in a state of disbelief. Ash’s kidnapped wife, Cathy, has made contact; the Somali pirates holding her are willing to make a deal for her return, but it is not one that either Ash or Hazel can live with. Desperate to get his family back, Ash comes up with a plan he shares with no one, to Hazel’s dismay. When ­Hazel sees the results of Ash’s actions, she is shocked into making big decisions of her own that will change both their lives forever.”
