Kate Redman has just changed jobs and is now Detective Sergeant, needing to become part of the team she has lots of baggage from her past; dealing with this case brings it all back to her and she has to struggle not to throw away her years of success by making emotional mistakes. Celina Grace has created a great character in Kate, her interaction with her colleagues is as well done as her problems with her mother.
This book moves at speed with a few minor continuity and spelling mistakes but is overall a satisfying short read. I would recommend this book as the perfect poolside read.
