Elizabeth Haynes second novel is a taut and gripping murder mystery introducing a compelling new heroine, Genevieve office worker by day and pole dancer by night who finds herself implicated in a mob underworld of murder, corruption and betrayal.
Genevieve has finally escaped the stressful demands of her sales job and achieved her dream: to leave London behind and start a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent. But on the night of her boat-warming party the dream is shattered when a body washes up beside the boat, and Genevieve recognises the victim.
As the sanctuary of the boatyard is threatened, and Genevieve s life seems increasingly at risk, the story of how she came to be so out of her depth is unfolded, and Genevieve finds out the real cost of mixing business with pleasure..

Review:

Haynes' first novel, Into the Darkest Corner...was an internet sensation last year and this is just as impressive and in much the same mould.

Haynes, does a great job in ratcheting up the suspense...and there are many lip-biting moments. --Daily Mail, March 15, 2012

This racy jeopardy thriller, making good use of several interesting settings, proves that Haynes' much-praised first novel was no fluke. --Morning Star, February 22, 2012

The style is easy to read with flashbacks leading into the present...The plot is excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent read. Plenty for reading groups to discuss. --New Books: the magazine for readers and reading groups

I finished it in the small hours of the following morning...this is the difficult-to-put-down second book. And if you haven't read Into The Darkest Corner then you really should. --The Bookbag

Packed with unexpected twists and turns the plot moves seamlessly from the past to the present...[and] surges towards its thrilling conclusion.

'Haynes' first novel, Into the Darkest Corner...was an internet sensation last year and this is just as impressive and in much the same mould. Haynes, does a great job in ratcheting up the suspense...and there are many lip-biting moments.' --DAILY MAIL, MARCH 2012

'Haynes has created a captivating heroine in Genevieve. For all her post-sexual-revolution behaviour, she comes over as a good old-fashioned tomboy. She is practical and pragmatic, with enviable physical skills, touchingly naive, and enhanced by an uncomplicated tender heart beating beneath her tough guy image. As Haynes herself is a police intelligence analyst she is well placed to add authenticity to her skills of storytelling. Unputdownable, this thriller with a heart of gold reads like a breath of fresh air.' --RED MAGAZINE
