‘I RACED THROUGH THIS – ROBERT SCRAGG’S STORYTELLING IS FIRST RATE. WE’LL BE SEEING A LOT MORE OF PORTER AND STYLES’ WILLIAM RYAN
DID SHE SLIP, OR WAS SHE PUSHED?
When a severed hand is found in an abandoned London flat, Detective Inspector Jake Porter and his partner Detective Sergeant Nick Styles are able to DNA match the limb to the owner, Natasha Barclay, who has not been seen in decades. But why has no one been looking for her?
Delving into the details behind her disappearance and discovering links to another investigation, a tragic family history begins to take on a darker twist. Natasha’s nearest and dearest are the people who can least be trusted.
Hampered by a widespread fear of a local heavy, as well as internal politics and possible corruption within the force, Porter and Styles are digging for answers, but will what they find ever see the light of day?
