When psychiatric patient Maureen O'Donnell finds her boyfriend dead in her living room, she is thrown into a difficult situation.

Maureen realises that unless she gets to the killer first, her life is in danger... 'One of the most original voices in crime fiction' Daily Mail With an introduction by VAL McDERMID
