Crown Prosecutor Helen West is doubly frustrated. Her lover, Geoffrey Bailey, is off to a police education course, with weekend visits only a slight possibility. And she has just failed for the fifth time to convict a menacing little man called Logo. Brought before the magistrate for trying to lure young girls to the cemetery, Logo blames all his troubles on the daughter who ran away four years before. If she returned, he could stop chasing the others.
Until Logo misbehaves again and Geoffrey returns, Helen can just stew. Or she can strike up an unlikely friendship with Rose, a smart office clerk who has slept with most of the young constables in the area. Tart-tongued Rose lets down her guard for Helen. But neither one of them is prepared for the terror just around the corner in Rose's life--.

Critical acclaim for Frances Fyfield:
'It may be that you have not yet acquired the Frances Fyfield habit; but if you like wholly realistic, terrifying chillers in the tradition of Highsmith and Rendell, laced with brilliant descriptions of modem London, and a sure touch when it comes to introducing sex and love interest into crime stories - then you will ... the only complaint I have about Frances Fyfield (who also writes under the name of Frances Hegarty) is that she has not yet written enough. There are only seven books so far. Addicts such as myself need at least 70.' - A. N. Wilson, Evening Standard
'Miss Fyfield is brilliant at building up suspense.' - The Lady
'Her best book to date.' - BooksFrom the Back Cover:
"Brilliant, dark, scary and authentic. This is a book to be read in daylight." -The Globe and Mail
"Fyfield's intelligence is as ferociously penetrating as ever." -Kirkus Reviews
"If you haven't discovered [Fyfield], do so--. This psychological twister has a terrific villain who is so sympathetic you can't hate him - until the next page." -The Providence Journal
"A terrifying chiller in the tradition of Highsmith and Rendell. Sexual energy - female sexual energy - is one of the spine-chilling ingredients. The women have real sexual and emotional needs which are portrayed with devastating realism." -The Evening Standard
