What if you found yourself divorced and penniless? With no skills and a teenage daughter to support? What if the only way to survive was to do things you never thought possible, to go places you never knew existed.

These are questions Sally has never really thought about before. Married to a successful business man, she’s always been a bit of a dreamer. Until now.

Her sister Zoe is her polar opposite. A detective inspector working out of Bath Central, she loves her job, and oozes self-confidence. No one would guess that she hides a crippling secret that dates back twenty years, and which, if exposed, may destroy her.

Then Sally’s daughter gets into difficulties, and Sally finds she needs cash, lots of it, fast. With no one to help her, she is forced into a criminal world of extreme pornography and illegal drugs; a world in which teenage girls can go missing.

Two sisters intent on survival. Until one does something so terrifying that there’s no way back.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/17/2014

    " Ending almost saved this book for me, but the decisions made by the characters are too irrational to be believed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 2/10/2014

    " Sisters Sally and Zoe are about to learn just how far they'll go to protect the ones they love in this latest dark thriller from Hayder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 2/10/2014

    " Read it in a day - kept my interest ALMOST until the end, I thought the "twist" at the end was very contrived "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgie | 1/30/2014

    " this really was quite chilling to the end. Just when you thought you have everything figured out you're put back in your place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/26/2014

    " I rather like Mo Hayder's books, though they occasionally wander too closely to gross out violence. Still, this book has a fantastic ending and that's hard to say about this genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Fisher | 1/20/2014

    " I would definitely read more books by this author. A little bleak, but I love British mysteries and this one had a couple of twists I didn't see coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wiebke | 1/16/2014

    " goed boek. Wat doe je als je geld nodig hebt en je het kan krijgen door iemand te vermoorden? Door de gevolgen van de moord, komen twee zussen ook weer dichter bij elkaar. Alleen het einde vond ik wat raar ... ik was me er niet zeker van of ik goed begrepen had, wie de moordenaar van het meisje was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Hodge | 1/7/2014

    " Another of Mo Hayder's pitch-black mystery thriller novels. It's a bit more conventional than her others but it's also the one in which she exhibits the most grace to her main characters. The two main characters - a divorced housewife and her policewoman sister - were fantastically realised. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Mehta | 12/4/2013

    " This was a riveting murder mystery that I could not put down. I recommend it if you like suspense novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deejay85 | 11/18/2013

    " Great read as usual from Mo Hayder - thoroughly enjoyed it and found it difficult to put down at times. If you like crime thrillers this is for you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kazimiera pendrey | 11/13/2013

    " this was a great read if the plot was somewhat far fetched however d readit was a goo "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina Hvitfeldt | 8/19/2013

    " Although heavy on coincidence, well-plotted with good characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene | 5/9/2013

    " One could take plot-writing lessons from Ms Hayder. I realized only at the end, how many red herrings she generously bestowed to this unsuspecting amateur detective reader. Perhaps now I know her style, I shall not be so easily fooled again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 3/31/2013

    " Was hooked from the begining of this book...really was a page turner, read this book i a couple days as couldnt put it down! It did freak me out a little at night lol....but loved it and it had a fantastic twist at the end!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mirjam | 3/13/2013

    " Vond het het een goed en spannend boek. Het einde laat ook wat over voor de eigen fantasie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jus | 3/10/2013

    " This started out and continued as a great story. However, the ending was just left in mid-air. We had no real resolution to the initial plot, almost as if a chapter had been ripped out. The book as a whole I enjoyed but the end was most disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Sinclair | 11/4/2012

    " A real page turner with twists right up to the end. Couldn't put it down, brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole | 10/29/2012

    " It is the first book of Mo Hayder that I'm reading since Birdman and The Treatment and I was not disapointed with this one. The plot is captivating and the finale makes me want more. You close the book and you're feeling like "Oh no!!!!". Good book, good plot and disturbing finale! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Laverty | 8/25/2012

    " Good book, easy read with a chilling ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Kovner | 7/29/2012

    " A solid, if somewhat straightforward (for Hayder) mystery. With a pair of well-developed female leads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Njoki | 7/20/2012

    " A good book. Not as scary as I thought it would be, but definitely a thriller, with an interesting storyline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rennie | 7/1/2012

    " Gritty but the two sisters who were the main characters were interesting and the mystery was not too easily solved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Gosden | 4/1/2012

    " Oh my! Mo Hayder writes some gripping crime fiction but this is really top notch. Gruesome in the extreme but un-put-downable. A young girl is killed in Bath and the tortous investigation leads to intrigue and plot and counter-plot. "
