The first book in a brand-new series by the Queen of Crime Drama, Lynda La Plante.
A BURNT-OUT COTTAGE
A FORTUNE BURIED IN THE ASHES
A BODY THAT COULD SOLVE A DECADES OLD CRIME
DC Jack Warr and his girlfriend Maggie have just moved to London to start a new life together. Though charming, Jack can’t seem to find his place in the world – until he’s drawn into an investigation that turns his life upside down.
In the aftermath of a fire at an isolated cottage, a badly charred body is discovered, along with the burnt remains of millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes.
Jack’s search leads him deep into a murky criminal underworld – a world he finds himself surprisingly good at navigating. But as the line of the law becomes blurred, how far will Jack go to find the answers – and what will it cost him?
