The Innocent Angels

Alison Belsham

A body in a cave. A family full of secrets. And time running out before the killer strikes again…

The case is one of the strangest Detective Lexi Bennett has ever seen. In a cave beneath a vineyard, a young woman in angel wings lies dead, her baby daughter crawling nearby.

Among the green vines and the rolling hills, Lexi finds no shortage of motives. The owner of the vineyard claims to be the father of the victim’s child, and his wife was clearly furious with her rival.

But when another woman is found dead wearing angel wings, her baby abandoned beside her, Lexi is certain the killer is following a strange and personal ritual.

Under pressure to arrest the obvious suspect and out on a limb, Lexi ignores her boss and follows her gut, deep into the past. When she’s attacked, she knows she’s on the right track. But the killer already has his next victim in his sights… and Lexi will have to risk everything to stop him.

For fans of Angela Marsons, Karin Slaughter and Val McDermid, The Innocent Angels will keep you hooked from the first page to the final shocking reveal.
