Tormented to the edge of sanity …
Just when DI Matthew Adams thinks he’s left the past behind him, it comes back to haunt him once again; this time in the form of the Conner family.
Like Matthew, the Conners have lost a child in tragic circumstances – and they’ve also found themselves in the hands of one of the most depraved criminals to walk the streets: ‘Dead-eyed’ Charlie Roberts, a drug addicted low-life with a penchant for extreme violence.
Matthew’s greatest affinity lies with Daniel Conner, the brooding father who still blames himself for his youngest child’s death. But when Daniel’s wife and daughter are tortured and tormented by Roberts, can Matthew prevent him from completely ruining his own life for an act of revenge particularly when, once upon a time, that’s exactly what Matthew would have done too?
Detective Inspector Matthew Adams is slowly picking up the pieces from a case that nearly cost him his family and his own sanity. On the surface, he seems to be moving on, but he drinks to forget and when he closes his eyes, the nightmares still wait for him.
But his nightmares threaten to become reality when an act of kindness ends with Matthew accused of a brutal crime, with little to no evidence to exonerate him. He knows he’s being set up. But by whom?
He’s about to find out. And so is his family. And Matthew may have to step beyond the law he’s sworn to uphold if he’s going to save those he loves from a madman . . .
