Book Description.

The unputdownable new crime novel, brimming with expert knowledge and authenticity, from an author with over twenty years’ policing experience.


When Anna arrives in the UK, she believes it’s the start of a better life for her and her daughter. But what awaits her is more shocking than anything she could have ever imagined . . .


DI Harry Powell is investigating a shooting, but the victim has been scared into silence. As Harry struggles to piece together what little information he has, he stumbles upon an operation that may put countless lives across the country at risk.


As Anna’s situation grows more dangerous by the day, Harry is forced to push his overstretched team to the limits to find answers. But for one of them, will it already be too late?

My Review

I was immediately sucked into this brilliant story.  It’s a real eye opener with some graphic descriptions of the quiet horrendous situations involving human trafficking but with the experienced writing, likeable characters and such a great story line a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I hadn’t read any Lisa Cutts books before (I look to remedy this soon), but you can clearly tell she knows what she is talking about thanks to her own long career within the police force. She touches alot on real world situations like lack of funds and staff and the situation of human trafficking and the life that goes with that.

I liked the way the book branched off into the private lives of the characters, even if only briefly, but this gave one a better feel for the characters and a little breather from the hard hitting story line.

I enjoyed the character of Harry and look forward to reading other books he features in.  Highly recommend a great read!

Thank you to @BeckyMcCarthy for the advanced copy.
