    DescriptionWhat if you found yourself divorced and penniless? With no skills and a teenage daughter to support? What if the only way to survive was to do things you never thought possible, to go places you never knew existed ...These are questions Sally has never really thought about before. Married to a successful business man, she's always been a bit of a dreamer. Until now. Her sister Zoe is her polar opposite. A detective inspector working out of Bath Central, she loves her job, and oozes self-confidence. No one would guess that she hides a crippling secret that dates back twenty years, and which - if exposed - may destroy her. Then Sally's daughter gets into difficulties, and Sally finds she needs cash - lots of it - fast. With no one to help her, she is forced into a criminal world of extreme pornography and illegal drugs; a world in which teenage girls can go missing. Two sisters intent on survival. Until one does something so terrifying that there's no way back ...

    Author Information
    Mo Hayder has written some of the most terrifying crime thrillers you will ever read. Her first novel, Birdman, was hailed as 'a first-class shocker' by the Guardian, and her follow-up, The Treatment, was voted by The Times one of the top ten most scary thrillers ever written. Mo's books are 100% authentic, drawing on her long research with several UK police forces and on her personal encounters with criminals and prostitutes. She now lives in England's West Country.
    Review quote
    "an authentically disturbing gripping winner." FT Weekend 20110402 "With Mo Hayder you never know where you are going until you get there. A chiller to the very end." THE TIMES 20110416 "She handles the plot with all the expertise and flair that her earlier work leads you to expect." SUNDAY TIMES 20110424 "Hayder is an excellent writer...She has the priceless ability to keep you turning the pages...especially with the novel's sly and beautifully finessed twist in the tail." SPECTATOR 20110604 "...an incendiary scenario, one that Hayder dispatches with her customary power." Good Book Guide, Oct 11
