⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
A gripping story of deception, betrayal, loyalty, tragedy and many, many secrets within secrets.
Martha Munro is content in her life. She lives with mum and her four-year-old daughter. She just made detective and lives in the shadow of her father, John Munro, he ran the anti-corruption squad at Scotland Yard, and has many enemies. He may no longer be living, but his reputation and his secrets live on. Now Martha must figure out what his secrets were to save herself and her daughter from tragedy and betrayal. She’ll find allies in people she’s known her whole life as well as in unexpected places.
This story was so hard to put down. It was gripping and sucked me in from the beginning of the book. I loved everything about this book, the characters, the story, the secrets, the intrigue throughout. Martha is a tough woman living in her father’s shadow, but she finds herself making a name in the police department as well. Even if she didn’t intend for it to happen. She just wants to live her life, enjoy her daughter and her mum and her close friends, but someone else has other plans for her. This was my first read of a Michael Leese book, but it won’t be my last. I love the way he carried the story and kept the reader on the edge of their seat throughout. I give this book a 5-star review and I am looking forward to more stories with Martha and her crew.
