When a mass grave is unearthed, it turns a detective’s life upside forever . . . in this “gritty, gripping, fresh and authentic” thriller (Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award–winning author of UNSUB).
Twenty-seven bodies, vacuum-packed, buried in a woodland trench. Some have been there for years, some for just days. When DI Brendan Foley recognises one of them, he knows this case is about to shake his world.
Foley has vital support in Det. Sgt. Iona Madison, a keen boxer outside work. But their loyalties are about to be tested to the extreme.
Pressure mounts as the discovery of the mass grave becomes the focus of media attention. Foley knows they can’t crack this case alone; however, he’s not letting a rival force take over.
Their investigation lead the two detectives into the murky underworlds of Manchester and Liverpool. But as Madison steps into the ring for the fight of her life, the criminals come to them. It’s no coincidence that the corpses have been buried in Foley’s hometown. The question is, why?
