Vanishing Point by Danielle Ramsay

Moaning, she lifted her aching head up off the cold tiled floor. In the background the razor sharp noise of dripping water echoed again and again. All she knew was that she was hurting. Really hurting. That was when she realised that her tongue was missing! Early on a Sunday morning in the North East seaside resort of Whitley Bay, a headless female torso washes up on the beach. Two days later, the body's missing head appears a mile down the coast -- and with that, DI Jack Brady is plunged into one of the most harrowing cases of his career. Just when things couldn't get any tougher, news arrives that Brady's former lover DS Simone Henderson is fighting for her life after a horrific attack -- yet unable to identify her assailants as her tongue has been cut out! Brady's investigation uncovers a depraved sex trade run by some of the most powerful men in the North East; men determined that no-one, not even DI Jack Brady, gets in the way of their foul business. But when he realises that the roots of evil may be too close to home, can he uncover the truth without his own world falling apart?

About the Author

Danielle Ramsay

Danielle Ramsay is a proud Scot living in a small seaside town in the North-East of England. Always a storyteller, it was only after initially following an academic career lecturing in literature that she found her place in life and began to write creatively full-time. After much hard graft her work was short-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger in 2009. Always on the go, always passionate in what she is doing, Danielle fills her days with horse-riding, running and murder by proxy.
