What to expect

‘I COULD NOT put this down! So, so, so tense.’ Angela Clarke, Sunday Times bestseller

Patricia Cornwell called J.S. Law’s first novel THE DARK BENEATH ‘addictively readable’ and now Lieutenant Dani Lewis returns in a gripping new thriller that fans of M.J. Arlidge and Elly Griffiths will love.

A savage murderer taunts the police from his cell.
Naval investigator Dani Lewis made her name by catching serial killer Christopher Hamilton, a master of manipulation who now lives to toy with the police. But when a stranger viciously attacks Dani, she fears Hamilton has one twisted game left to play.

As the case spirals out of control, Dani realises Hamilton’s deadly grip reaches deeper than she ever knew. With her sanity and family in peril, Dani has no choice but to confront pure evil – even if it drags up the darkest secrets of the past.


‘J.S. Law’s taut crime novel oozes authenticity. I read this in a day and can’t wait for the next in what will undoubtedly be an explosive series‘ Clare Mackintosh, number one bestseller’

‘An impressive debut…gripping, entertaining reading’ The Times

‘Addictively readable, and memories of it linger like dreams‘ Patricia Cornwell
