A dark psychological thriller featuring Diane Fry and Ben Cooper, in which a small community is ripped apart by arson and murder. `Ingenious plotting and richly atmospheric' - Reginald Hill. An assassination in the night - an open window and three bullets from the darkness - the victim a harmless middle-aged woman.
But can she really be quite as innocent as she seems?
The death of Rose Shepherd swarms with questions - unlike the deaths of a woman and her two children in a house fire.
A tragedy, yes, but an everyday one. Then DS Fry discovers a link between the two cases, a link that crosses the borders between nations, between right and wrong, between madness and sanity.
She and Ben Cooper discover why some people are scared to live - and others are fated to die...
