'Elegant, spooky and a compulsive page turner.' - Daily Mail
Julia Havilland had a loving family, a peaceful upbringing and not a worry in the work, until two events shattered her golden childhood: Julia stumbles across the brutally murdered body of neighbour Sarah Ford, and her father is soon after killed in action in the Falklands.
Fifteen years later, Julia returns to England for the first time, ordered to come home while an enquiry is undertaken that may be the end of a spectacular career in military intelligence. But the ghosts of her past are ready and waiting to haunt her.
