Second in the acclaimed Sean Denton Yorkshire-based crime series.

The notorious Chasebridge Killer is released from prison; a woman is desperately trying to claw back her life from a past that her tormentor won’t let her forget; and the mutilated body of a young Muslim man lies in the stairwell of a Doncaster tower block.  It soon becomes clear to PC Sean Denton that these events have a deadly link…

As Denton gets drawn into the case of the dead man, his family life and his police job become dangerously entwined – can he confront the demons that encircle his own life before it’s too late?


'Exciting, pacey, vivid and humane. Read it'. Lesley Glaister
'A hugely assure and gripping debut. Let's hope we see a lot more of Sean Denton'. Mark Billingham
'One of Cadbury's strengths is conciseness. Characters are often introduced with a considered sketch and there's never a sense of any padding. The novel, therefore, moves at quite a pace... Cadbury also excels at dialogue and throws in nice snippets of social observation... Cadbury has laid down somes strands to be picked up in subsequent novels'. Killing Time Crime Blog
'The descriptions of the setting, Yorkshire at its bleakest, the characters, were so subtly slipped in that I absorbed them subliminally... I am now reading this excellent book again'
