A money-laundering accountant disappears in Romania. The hitman hired to disappear him is found dead in a Glasgow flat. And the owner of the flat, the accountant's widow, claims she knows nothing about it.
Crime reporter Rosie Gilmour isn't convinced by Helen Lewis's innocent facade - she is convinced Helen was the one who ordered the hit on her husband, and she's going to prove it. But when she discovers that Helen's husband worked for a ring of gangsters selling babies from Romanian orphanages, her focus shifts. Now she has two sets of criminals to bring to justice - she'd better pray they don't catch up with her first.
A nail-biting thriller for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Dreda Say Mitchell and Jessie Keane
I'm worried of repeating myself, but I really do like this series, I have enjoyed each and everyone. I will say (again) that these books really would be best enjoyed if read in order.
I love Anna's style of writing, she has a gift of dragging you into the story. Rosie now feels like a friend, albeit a fictional one. Have I just said that. I thought I'd stopped having imaginary friends years ago.
This story is no different to any other for Rosie, It's her story and she's going to get it and publish it at all costs. Often it does cost Rosie dearly, but that's what makes her such a likeable character.
Another brilliant, and interesting read from a very talented author.
