Alex Morrow is not new to the police force-or to crime-but there is nothing familiar about the call she has just received. On a still night in a quiet suburb of , three armed men have slipped from a van into a house, demanding a man who is not, and has never been, inside the front door. In the confusion that ensues, one family member is shot and another kidnapped, the assailants demanding an impossible ransom. Is this the amateur crime gone horribly wrong that it seems, or something much more unexpected?
As Alex falls further into the most challenging case of her career, Denise Mina proves why "if you don't read crime novels, Mina is your reason to change" ( News).

In this book Denise Mina introduces her newest protagonist, Alex Morrow. I'm hoping there are many other books featuring this character to follow. Morrow's personal life is every bit as interesting as the main plot of the book. I had a hard time putting this one down.
We miss Paddy Meehan! But Alex is just as good. Ms. Mina is certainly one of the most underrated, if not obscure, mystery writers. Undeservedly so.
