It’ s Christmas and DS Zander Ellery is buried in work. He’ s tried hard to put the events of Jack’ s House, an undercover operation, behind him, yet his thoughts keep returning to Kate. She promised to keep in touch, and she hasn’ t.
Kate Dahlbeck left town after the events of Jack’ s House. With her past exposed, no home and no job, she fled to her brother to work for him. Now she’ s up to her neck in trouble, on the run and can only think of one person to help. Zander with a zed.
Zander and his partner, DC Isabel York, agree to help. It doesn’ t take much investigating before Zander understands that Kate’ s situation is far worse, far messier, and far more dangerous than he first realized.
