A Tom Thorne Novel
When DI Tom Thorne is called to conduct a routine assessment at the site of a suicide, he expects to be in and out in no time. But when he arrives at the metro station where Philippa Goodwin threw herself in front of a train, Thorne senses something awry and feels compelled to dig deeper. Discovering that she was the victim of a callous con-man who preys on vulnerable women, Thorne enlists DI Nicola Tanner to help him track down the swindler and bring him to justice. But the duo gets more than they bargained for when a young man's bludgeoned body turns up in a nearby seaside town, and the two cases come together in a way that neither could have foreseen.
