DS Louisa Williams struggles against the odds to bring the serial killer to justice before he claims any more victims. Two women have already been brutally strangled and Louisa finds herself battling her new DI, as well as the odds, to catch the murderer. With her job on the line, she comes to rely on her colleague Millie and the handsome acting-DC Mark Ward in her fight for justice for the victims and for herself. Mark proves himself to be an invaluable member of the team and Louisa is quick to notice this and seeks his help throughout the case. Will Louisa be able to fit the pieces of this tangled investigation together before her DI transfers her back into uniform? What secret is DI Oakes hiding and will Louisa have the courage to reveal it? Look over your shoulder. You never know who’s behind you.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always loved reading or watching mysteries. My favourites are Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Lewis and Hettie Wainthrop. I wondered if I could write my own mysteries so I took the plunge. I made lots of notes, researched police procedures and then settled down to write an outline.
Bit by bit, word by word I got to know my characters and began to explore my original idea – murder without too much blood or gore.
My characters soon took on a life of their own and DS Louisa Williams was created.
