Publisher's Summary

Who killed Sophie Washington?
Early one cold November morning in the run-down seaside resort of Whitley Bay, the body of a young girl is discovered. Found abandoned five minutes’ walk from her home, her face has been mutilated beyond recognition.
DI Jack Brady, just back on active duty after recovering from a vicious shooting incident, is on the edge. Struggling to deal with his marriage break-up and his tortured past, his problems intensify when long-standing friend and colleague DI James Matthews confidentially reveals that he was with the victim the night of her murder.
Brady's loyal deputy, the clean-cut, Detective Sergeant Harry Conrad and the attractive and highly-respected police psychologist, Dr Amelia Jenkins are assigned with Brady to solve the victim's murder. But the investigation becomes increasingly compromised as Brady realises that Matthews is holding something back from him that could be vital to the case.
As Brady delves ever deeper into Sophie's life, he comes to realise that the three men who should have protected her during her short life are the chief suspects in her murder: her teacher, her step-father and a police detective.
Brady finds himself unravelling a metaphorical thread that eventually makes him re-evaluate not only the seemingly blameless life of the victim, but more disturbingly, Matthews's motivation and ultimately his own.

Skip it!

Based on the previous review, I ordered this one. I am less than halfway through it, and I regret it intensely. I expected the unraveling of a mystery; so far I've got lots of police department politics (ugh!). I expected a smooth, satisfying story; so far I've got ridiculous contradictions, asinine dialogue, uncontrollable 15-year-old girls who are indistinguishable from hardcore prostitutes described as "typical teenagers", and a hero who has been passionately in love with two out of the four women so far introduced and appears to be irresistible to a third. The fourth one is his psychiatrist, so I guess it's just a matter of time. I think there should be a money-back guarantee for the likes of this one.

Very Good Writer!

I loved her writing style, no long fillers and explanations. I very much enjoyed Danielle's book and can't wait for her next one. My only disappointment was the fact that there weren't any more of them.
