The explosive follow-up from Sarah Pinborough, author of the number one Sunday Times best seller Behind Her Eyes. ‘Cross my heart and hope to die...’ Promises last only if you trust each other, but what if one of you is hiding something?

The recession has left the world exhausted. Crime is rising; financial institutions across the world have collapsed, and most governments are now in debt to The Bank, a company created by the world's wealthiest men.

His marriage is crumbling, he's haunted by the deeds of his past, and he's got the high-profile shooting of two schoolboys to solve - not to mention tracking down a serial killer who calls himself the Man of Flies.
