Bestselling author of the critically acclaimed Suspect, Michael Robotham pens a dark mystery that uncovers the shadowy world of human exploitation.

Police detective Ali Barba receives an urgent letter from her estranged friend Cate. Startled by the letter’s alarming tone and eager to atone for egregious past actions, Ali meets Cate at their high school class reunion. The obviously pregnant Cate begs Ali to stop those who are trying to take her baby. But the plot takes a bizarre twist when a careening car kills Cate—and Ali discovers the truth about Cate’s pregnancy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Vibrant and utterly contemporary…An altogether superior thriller.” 

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Wonderfully assured, with a pell-mell plot, smart prose and a strong complex narrator.”

    Seattle Times

  • “In keeping with the opening sentence’s invocation of Graham Greene, the author’s terse, resonant prose hides more than it reveals. Readers will hope Robotham has many more books of this caliber in him.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Heartfelt and gripping, but neither as surprising nor as original as Robotham’s first two novels.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A 2007 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist

    " This mystery asked me to suspend belief a little too much. Alisha Barba, ex-competitive runner and a policewoman about to return to work after a bad injury gets a message from a friend who dropped her years earlier. Cate is 8 months pregnant and asking for Alisha's help. On the night they arrange to meet, Cate and her husband are run down by a taxi. Is it really an accident? What does Cate's old tormenter Donovan have to do with it. Why does a young man from Afghanistan have Alisha's name on him? Alisha traces the mysteries with the help of Ruiz, a retired detective, and Dave, a current policeman enamored of Alisha. She seems to get away with a lot, and have a lot of luck as well. The story was okay, but not great. "
