A Bad, Bad Thing


Haunted by her past, which she keeps carefully hidden, London homicide detective Eve West has buried herself in her work for many years. But when she stumbles into the midst of a covert police operation, with catastrophic consequences, she is suspended from duty, her reputation in tatters.

As things spiral out of control and her past is brutally dragged to the surface, she realizes that she has been plunged into a case more complex and sinister than she ever imagined …
