Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2011.
What if you found yourself divorced and penniless? With no skills and a teenage daughter to support? What if the only way to survive was to do things you never thought possible, to go places you never knew existed. These are questions Sally has never really thought about before.

The Fear: Headstrong Detective Inspector Zoe Benedict knows exactly how she wants to work this case.
