Publisher's Summary

Your new addiction starts here: get hooked on the number one best-selling series. Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and M. J. Arlidge.

There's no easy way to die....

Unknown to DI Luc Callanach and the newly promoted DCI Ava Turner, a serial killer has Edinburgh firmly in his grip. The killer is taking his victims in the coldest, most calculating way possible - engineering slow and painful deaths by poison, with his victims entirely unaware of the drugs flooding their bloodstream until it's too late.

But how do you catch a killer who hides in the shadows? A killer whose pleasure comes from watching pain from afar? Faced with their most difficult case yet, Callanach and Turner soon realise they face a seemingly impossible task....

Critic Reviews

"Read it in two sittings. I literally had no choice. A fast and enthralling thriller, pitting a new, very human hero against one of the scariest psychos I've yet encountered in crime fiction." (Sunday Times best seller Paul Finch)
"Without doubt, this is one of the best first detective series I have read." (Woman's Way Magazine)
"Genuinely chilling." (Saga Magazine)

Great read

Thank you Helen Fields. You don’t disappoint. After 3 disappointing reads from other authors, this book made up for it all.

Brilliant story, brilliant characters. Keeps you on tenterhooks throughout.

Hope the next book in this series is on its way.

Such a lovely bouquet of accents!

Absolutely well read. The wealth of accents, and my knowledge of Edinburgh - was like being there. BUT, books ending was rushed, and felt very lacking.
