What to expect

When the skeleton of a young woman is found near a West Midlands motorway, evidence suggests that it is that of teenager Molly James, who went missing five years ago.

Forensic psychologist Dr Kate Hanson and the Unsolved Crime Unit are called in to re-investigate Molly’s case. The deeper they dig the dirtier the clues get, and when a second set of remains is unearthed Kate suspects they’re looking for a Repeater: a killer who will adapt, grow and not stop until they are caught.

Will Dr Hanson manage to unravel the tangle of clues that the killer has left behind before he has a chance to take another innocent victim?

Critics Review

  • Intriguing and well-written

    LITERARY REVIEW
  • The author of this cracking crime thriller is a real-life forensic psychologist, and her expertise gives it a shocking authenticity… This acted on my heart-rate like a defibrillator

    SAGA
  • It’s hard to put down. A.J. Cross’s novel is realistic, distancing it from Hollywood-style serial-killer fiction, and it is all the more powerful for that

    WE LOVE THIS BOOK
  • Engrossing from the first chapter

    MYSTERY PEOPLE
  • [Cross’s] knowledge of her subject gives this a gritty authenticity all of its own – right up to a nail-biting and satisfying conclusion
