Publisher's Summary

Who are the Special Girls? Are they victims or 'asking for it'? A case of historical child sex abuse by a famous doctor is linked to the murder of his young and popular colleague at a summer camp deep in the Essex woods.

A young psychiatric registrar is found beaten to death in the woods close to a summer camp for young patients suffering from eating disorders. It is run by the charismatic, world-renowned Professor Ned Chesham. DI Grace Fisher investigates, but it is not long before she is pulled from the case - to head up a Metropolitan Police review into a cold case involving Chesham himself.

Nearly 20 years ago, one of Chesham's patients made allegations that he sexually assaulted her. The investigation at the time found no conclusive proof, but Grace soon discovers another victim and a witness whose account never reached the police. Does this mean the original investigation was bungled? Scotland Yard would certainly like her to conclude otherwise. As Grace uncovers the lies that led to the young doctor's murder, she discovers the full extent of the damage done to Chesham's 'special girls' - and the danger they are still in.

An excellent listen

Really enjoyed the first two in this series. This one surpassed those. Stands on it's own if you haven't read the previous ones.

A great read

A very insightful story, difficult subject matter is dealt with in a very sensitive manner. I really enjoyed the characters and their moral dilemmas. This is book 3 of a series and I'm looking forward to reading the next one. Definitely read them in chronological order, as past events get mentioned and influence decisions etc.

Best so far...

I really enjoyed previous Grace Fisher encounters and this was the best yet, her character is really developing and I can imagine where future books will take her; combined with the intriguing relationship with Evo a very insightful storyline and eloquent narration, it's an all round great choice.

A great book

The heroine is a great character and we despite some tropes (eg unlikeable boss) these books hook you in. Looking forward to future books.
