Someone is dead because of Jamie. Yesterday they were alive. When we woke up yesterday and argued about how many pairs of shoes I could take, that person was alive, making coffee maybe.
Scratching her arm or yawning in the mirror... Newly qualified as a firearms officer, Jamie Worth is called to a domestic disturbance.
Events get out of hand, and he shoots and kills a teenaged girl who appears to have been unarmed.
Already wracked with guilt, he is horrified when, with the media baying for blood, he is accused of murder.
How can a cop survive in prison, when he suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law? And how can his wife Cath and ex-lover Anna come to terms with what has happened?
From the author of THE TWILIGHT TIME, AFTER THE FIRE is a chilling glimpse of the flipside of life as a law enforcer, written in 'stiletto-sharp prose' (The Herald) by one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.
