Please note this book was previously published as And None Shall Sleep
A missing lawyer. A strangled nurse. A killer that DI Joanna Piercy must track down before they strike again.
Jonathan Selkirk is a ruthless, powerful lawyer. He thinks he’s untouchable. Until he receives a letter.
‘JONATHAN SELKIRK, MAKE YOUR WILL.’
It’s a threat.
Hours later, Selkirk is recovering in Leek Cottage Hospital from a suspected heart attack.
But the next morning his bed is empty. And there’s a trail of blood down the corridor. DI Joanna Piercy can’t believe Selkirk left under his own steam.
Then a body turns up in Gallows Wood. Pyjama-clad, hands bound, a bullet hole in the back of the neck.
And one of the nurses from the hospital is found strangled to death with her own nylon stocking.
With a ruthless killer in their midst, Piercy will be pushed to her limits to keep the town safe.
A THRILLING MYSTERY THAT WILL HAVE YOU HOOKED FROM THE FIRST PAGE.
An accomplished police procedural with a stunningly realized heroine, perfect for fans of Elly Griffiths, Joy Ellis, L.J. Ross, Lynda La Plante, Ruth Rendell, Jane Adams and Helen H. Durrant.

DI Joanna Piercy, newly promoted to inspector, is already an outsider in this remote moorland town. And now she has to deal with the ire of her male colleagues who were passed over for the job. But Joanna knows her own mind, and doesn’t need friends to get the job done. She’s gotten used to them calling her the ‘Ice Maiden’ and the ‘Snow Queen’ by now.
Leek is a bustling historic market town nestled in the Staffordshire Moorlands. The surrounding area of high, bleak moors are peppered with isolated farms, small holdings and cottages. This small town and its surrounding rugged moorlands, complete with spectacular views, are full of local character — and danger.
