I haven’t been able to put this down … now I have finished it, I will be bereft …My all-time favourite crime series … Kerry Wilkinson is one of the best crime authors around … I LOVED it!’ 5 stars The Book Club

A severed hand is discovered in the centre of Manchester and the only clue Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has to go on is CCTV footage of a woman in a long black robe placing it carefully on the ground.

With a growing missing persons list and frantic families wondering if the body part could belong to their absent loved ones, Jessica must solve the case fast.

When a second hand is found and a local politician’s wife goes missing, Jessica is left struggling to find out who the appendages belong to. The mother of missing Lewis Barnes, is convinced his girlfriend, twenty-six year-old January Forrester is responsible, but something doesn’t add up. Who is the mysterious woman in black and how is she connected to the abandoned body parts?

Then, unnervingly, a detached finger arrives in the post for Jessica – and it’s clear that someone knows exactly who she is.

A totally gripping and chilling thriller that will have you completely hooked to the very last page.
