A MOTHER NEVER CAME HOME AND NOW THEY’VE FOUND THE BODY
Six years ago, Lyn Dimas went missing. She had left her nine-year-old son home alone and her daughter was at a school prom.
Now, builders find a mummified corpse tied to the back of a fridge in a derelict building. An old mattress completes the sad scene.
Detective Siv Drummond is called in to solve this baffling case.
Siv discovers the victim had a complicated home life. But why did Lyn disappear on a quick trip to the shop and can Siv unearth the truth of family secrets and lies, before anyone else pays the ultimate price?
A cold case bursts into life to tear apart a family again.
WHO WANTED HER DEAD?
Perfect for fans of Robert Galbraith, Tana French, Liane Moriarty, Rachel Cain or Ruth Rendell.
MEET THE DETECTIVE
Detective Inspector Siv Drummond is widowed following a tragic accident involving her husband. With everything in London reminding her of the past, she moves from a high-profile squad with the Met to a new job as DI in her old home town — sleepy, seaside Berminster. She’s still grieving and lonely, but she’s a fighter and she's smart, which earns her the respect of her colleagues DS Ali Carlin and DC Patrick Hill, and the grudging approval of her DCI, who wants his protégé to get her job.
