While Rachel struggles with the fallout that comes with being torn from the world she loves, Mycroft has parallel struggles of his own. Together they form late night habits that include taking food to a homeless guy, until one night they find old Dave murdered.
Watts and Mycroft work their way through crimes scenes and hidden clues, finding each other in the process. Amid visiting the morgue, scaling dodgy scaffolding and school suspensions, there’s never a dull moment.
This is a book you can easily get lost in for a few hours. Physical, emotional, sexual and forensic tensions compete for attention as the pages fly and then the real danger emerges. In the end, I had to keep reading. I needed to know if Mycroft and Watts could manage to make it out alive.
Unputdownable. (Is that even a word?)
