A world of mystery and intrigue in Dundee during the year 1919. And a new sleuth unlike any other currently in print.
Kirsty Campbell, former suffragette and a policewoman in Britain’s newly formed women’s police service, returns to her hometown of Dundee to become the city’s first policewoman. Her struggle for acceptance in the all-male police force is not easy, and she fights for recognition. But Kirsty is not easily intimidated and, despite police attempts to curtail her activities, she defies her superior officer to pursue an investigation into a murder which is linked to missing orphan girls.
Kirsty is an unusual character with a fascinating history and background. She has demons of her own to fight, as well as becoming involved in a deadly game of sacrifice and death? But how will she cope when the sins of the past come back to haunt her?
