A darkly compelling novel from the author of Dead Lovely.

Tips for Parole Officers:

1. Don't smuggle heroin into prison.

2. Don't drink vodka to relieve stress.

3. Don't French kiss a colleague to get your boyfriend jealous.

4. Don't snort speed.

5. Don't spend more time with murderers than your own son.

6. Don't invite crack-head clients to your party.

This is Krissie's advice after being in the job for a month. She's happy and in love, but her naivety and blind compassion plunge her into a shocking murder case that could jeopardise everything - her job, her relationship, and her life.

The case is that of Jeremy, a Londoner on remand for the brutal murder of his mother-in-law. A history of violence from a tragic childhood accident combined with his lack of alibi seem to make it an open and shut case. But Krissie - who is becoming more and more personally involved in the case - can't help feeling a miscarriage of justice has been done, and she battles to secure his release.

But a dark family secret is at the heart of the murder, and Krissie is out of her depth. Because someone isn't happy. Someone dangerous. Someone who will stop at nothing to get to her .
