What to expect

THE BRILLIANT NEW THRILLER FROM THE RICHARD & JUDY SEARCH FOR A BESTSELLER COMPETITION WINNER AND #1 BESTSELLER.

Who killed Holly Kemp?

Christopher Masters, known as ‘The Roommate Killer’, strangled three women over a two-week period in a London house in November 2012. Holly Kemp, his fourth victim, was never found. Until now.

Her remains have been unearthed in a field in Cambridgeshire and DC Cat Kinsella and the Major Investigation Team are called in for what should be an open-and-shut case. But immediately Cat has questions and with Masters dead and few new leads, she has little to go on except her gut instinct, which is telling her that the real killer is still out there.

But if you’d got away with murder, how far would you go to keep the past where it belongs?
