The Blurb

The young girl who causes the fatal car crash disappears from the scene.
A runaway who doesn't want to be found, she only wants to go home.
To the one man who understands her.
Gives her shelter.
Just as he gives shelter to the other lost girls who live in his house.
He's the head of her new family.
He's Harm.

D.I. Marnie Rome has faced many dangerous criminals but she has never come up against a man like Harm. She thinks that she knows families, their secrets and their fault lines. But as she begins investigating the girl's disappearance nothing can prepare her for what she's about to face.
Because when Harm's family is threatened, everything tastes like fear...

My Thoughts

A very average crime thriller. A good plot but lacking any action with too many characters that where superfluous and ultimately made the book drag on to the point I lost interest in what was going on. I absolutely hated the Sol storyline, went nowhere. It gave absolutely nothing to the story or character development and the Gay cliché that was Dan was just as bad. I fail to see where the 5 stars have come from, perhaps the bloggers who review these books are scared that if they don’t wax lyrical they will be blacklisted by the publisher. It’s not bad, far from it, it’s just not mind-blowing as a lot of the reviews suggest.
