Publisher's Summary

She knelt down by the side of the first girl. She had to force herself to breathe as she lifted the soft white cloth covering the girl’s beautiful face....

When the body of a woman is found hanging from a tree in her front garden, rookie Detective Morgan Brookes is first on the scene. But Olivia Potter is past saving. And when her husband and daughters cannot be traced, Morgan knows there is more to this tragedy. And then she finds them. Lying huddled together in the dark basement, each of their faces covered with a small cotton cloth, their bodies cold to the touch. 

But as Morgan kneels beside the family, she realizes that one of the girls is still breathing. As she holds Bronte’s fragile hand in hers, begging her to hold on, she vows to find out who has done this. 

Every day Morgan wakes at 4.25 a.m., her old insomnia now mixed with a new fixation on the case. But every clue about the murdered family leads to a dead end. Until, trawling through old files, she discovers a link to a cold case from years ago. Another family was murdered in this house, and the killer was never caught. 

When Morgan returns to the scene of the crime to discover more about this forgotten case, she finds another body. With Bronte still unconscious in hospital, Morgan must act fast to solve this case and lay two families to rest, before the killer returns for the girl left alive....

Great characters

Really enjoyed the banter and development of the characters! Excited for the second book. Not very procedural but somewhat.

Utter rubbish

This is the only book in the 6 titles I buy on average a month from audible. Completely awful story line whining female (Morgan) and equally useless DS.... save your money if you are an avid crime/thriller reader. Got to chapter 19 and gave up!

Sunday afternoon mystery for Hallmark channel

Probably good for teenagers, as 'light' and with a little romance on the side. Cannot be considered for serious mystery or crime readers! I managed to finish it but I was determined.
