An abandoned infant on her doorstep is the last thing Manchester private eye Sal Kilkenny needs as she faces the challenge of her current case. Sal’s client Libby Hill is trying to put her life back together after the brutal killing of her love and the conviction of petty criminal Damien Beswick who confessed to the murder. But now Beswick has retracted his confession – exactly what game is he playing? The evidence against him seems damning, but is there more to this case than meets the eye? And how can Sal pursue her investigations with an unexpected baby to look after? Then things get up close and personal – and there are further bombshells to come with fall-out that threatens everything Sal holds dear.
