Review

Isabelle Grey never loses sight of the impact on victims in . . . this brave and harrowing novel (Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month)

There are plenty of twists to this compelling and compassionate tale, but it's the sensitivity with which Isabelle Grey handles the legacy of harm that gives the story its beating heart (Sarah Hilary)

The story hooks like barbed wire, and is so convincingly told it's hard to believe she's not a cop herself. So of the moment, sensitive to nuances of responsibility, denial, paralysis of will. So much more than a police procedural (Laline Paull, author of The Bees)

A penetrating analysis of Stockholm Syndrome with a notably filmic sensibility (Guardian)

An intelligent, sophisticated police procedural with a completely believable central character and a strong moral core. Emotional and hardhitting, highly recommended (Sinead Crowley, author of Can Anybody Help Me? and Are You Watching Me?)

The sort of book Rendell could have produced . . . the standout crime novel so far of 2017 (Crimesquad)

Plenty of suspense and gripping, instructive writing about real people facing impossible, often tragic predicaments. This is an excellent crime novel, warmly recommended (Literary Review)

Combines attention to detail with compassionate intelligence (Sunday Times on Shot Through the Heart)

Full of well-handled forensics and the brooding atmosphere of the Essex coast (Mail on Sunday on Shot Through the Heart)

An unusual police procedural . . . beautifully written, full of interesting insights, and atmospherically set (Literary Review on Shot Through the Heart)

Grey's credentials as a television writer shine through . . . the inner workings of the Major Investigation Team are just as enthralling to read about as the serial killer they are hunting (Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go, on Good Girls Don't Die)

Assured, convincing and especially good on . . . the delicate - and often dodgy - nature of the relationship between the police and the press (Laura Wilson, Guardian on Good Girls Don't Die)

Combines clever plot twists with a surprising delicacy of feeling (Sunday Times on Good Girls Don't Die)

A realistic, gripping police procedural . . . they rarely get better than this (Book Addict Shaun on Good Girls Don't Die)

A thrilling read that will leave you wanting much more of Grace Fisher (We Love This Book on Good Girls Don't Die)

Top notch crime fiction . . . a superb example of its kind (Liz Loves Books on Good Girls Don't Die)

The writing is fluid and enthralling . . . a terrific and believable supporting cast (CrimeThrillerFella on Good Girls Don't Die)

Book Description

They are called the 'special girls'. How are they special and why were they chosen? Historical child sex abuse is linked to the murder of a young doctor in this gripping psychological thriller
