DC Melanie Cotton’s fledgling career is about to take an interesting turn. Freshly promoted to CID, Mel is excited by a new disturbing and mysterious case – her first murder investigation as a detective. But as she discovers, there’s far more to this case than a gruesome killing, and Mel’s skills and courage are about to tested to the limit.
