AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Detective-Inspector Debra Hawkins has domestic violence in her sights. But as head of a new police unit targeting violence against women within cultural enclaves, she has hit a wall of silence. How can she help Rana al-Sheikly, a young woman who yearns for the freedom to lead her own life while her brothers are planning to send her into a forced marriage in Iraq? And what is the connection between the al-Sheikly men and the crime gangs that are running rife in the suburbs?

'A series of anonymous emails has Deb following her personal secrets, too - back to her childhood and the murder of her police sergeant father. Someone is digging up the past - threatening Debra's hard-won career, and even her life.

'In the tradition of the bestsellers that made her name - FORTRESS and WHIPPING BOY - Gabrielle Lord brings us a gripping new crime novel that taps straight into the issues of our times.' (Publication summary)
