Publisher's Summary

On a warm spring evening, guests gather in a perfectly manicured garden to celebrate Maggie and Len’s twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Maggie leans against the apple tree, watching her fun-loving husband and darling children as her heart swells with pride. As the joyful party atmosphere disappears into the night, close by, the lifeless body of a young woman is pulled from a river.

Slipping upstairs to find the special gift for her adoring husband, Maggie stumbles across something else hidden amongst the dusty boxes of family keepsakes...

A printed pink silky scarf that doesn’t belong to her. She holds it up to her face, breaths in the sweet sickly perfume, it’s scent familiar, and tendrils of fear snake through her body. The scarf is stained with blood.

As Maggie re-joins the party and tries to ignore her churning stomach, she pours herself a glass of champagne to toast the man she’s enjoyed decades of happy marriage with. Then she catches a news flash of the local girl’s murder. She stares at the girl with the beautiful face, long ice-blonde hair and, draped loosely around her neck, Maggie recognises it instantly. She’s wearing the scarf.

An utterly addictive and twisty story about the complex web of secrets within a family that will have you racing through to the mind-blowing end. If you love Lisa Jewell, Gillian Flynn and Behind Closed Doors, you won’t be able to put this down!

Another great story by Anna Lou

I have absolutely loved all of the Detective Dan Riley stories. Awesomely written and superbly narrated; the perfect combination, I really hope they continue with this partnership and series. I have been captivated by all of them from the very beginning.

Great narrative enjoyed the performance of the narrator.

The performance of the narrator is great. The book itself is well written with some plot twist but it’s not waterproof , in fact after a few chapters mentioned jealousy from childhood I already figured out who is the killer. Well it’s not a Sherlock novel forgive that .

I love this Detective Dan Riley series! 💞

I really don’t want this series to end anytime soon! I am so attached to Detective Dan Riley - probably the most attached to a book series detective character since Eve Dallas in the J.D. Robb (AKA Nora Roberts) murder mystery series! I love how his character has such integrity but is also so real, empathetic and sees the raw complexity of the human experience instead of only being a procedural puppet of a broken justice system. If only there were far more cops like Dan Riley around the world, it genuinely would be a safer & fairer planet.
