Megan has to climb round and step across the body to get a proper view. What’s left is like a chalk white mask in the rough shape of a face. The innocence is still there, and a hint of the cheekiness. But perhaps she is imagining that.
Detective Megan Thomas moved to Devon for a fresh start, after years spent undercover. She’s staying with her sister and swimming in the sea daily, battling the tides and letting the waves wash her past away. But she can’t outrun everything.
On her first day back, she’s called to a murder. The body lies deep in an underground bunker, and when Megan forces herself to look, it triggers a panic attack. As her heart races and her breathing stalls, she realises she’s not sure if she can go back to life in a regular crime unit. Her memories are too powerful to be buried – maybe too powerful to let her do her job.
But when another body is found on the stretch of beach where she swims every day, Megan remembers why she joined the force, and what she’s fighting for. The victim came to the police for help, and Megan knows they failed her. She won’t rest until she gets answers. But how can she find justice for others, when she’s no longer sure of herself?
A completely gripping new series from bestselling author Susan Wilkins, introducing the tough and determined Detective Megan Thomas. For fans of Ann Cleeves, LJ Ross and Mari Hannah, this will keep you hooked from the first page to the last.
Having read other books by this author in her Kaz Phelps series I was looking forward to seeing what would be offered in this book, the first one to feature Detective Megan Thomas.
I love starting a new series and starting from the very beginning is best. I like to get know the characters early on. I enjoy being able to learn about the character and seeing them grow.
The main character is Megan Thomas. After working undercover Megan now lives with her sister and getting back into life that isn't undercover. Working for the Major Crime team in Devon a new case is thrown at Megan. It soon becomes clear that Megan has issues she needs to work through and has a panic attack at the scene. Megan needs to learn to control this and get herself back to the person she was, even if it is going to be so difficult.
I think I'm going to like Megan as a character, I think she's going to have so much to offer and I believe this could be a pretty damn good series.
I am looking forward to what is offered in future books.
