Miranda Gregory is a successful London businesswoman with few friends, a very private private life, and a past that's shrouded in secrecy. When she turns up critically injured in a hit-and-run accident, the police are mystified, especially since Miranda is in a coma and can't be questioned about what happened. Then they receive a call from a hysterical office worker who's made a grisly discovery--a dead body with half of the face shot away. And guess where the body was found? Miranda's office, of course. Bad things come in threes, so it's no surprise when Miranda's adoptive father is found dead, an apparent suicide victim. The talented, persistent coppers of the Thames Valley CID dig away at bits and pieces until they finally unravel the horrifying secret of Miranda's past. Curzon's competent writing and keen understanding of the human psyche--plus an ingenious plot and a cast of fascinating characters--add up to a story that's sure to be a favorite among procedural fans.
