"Philomena McCarthy is a young, ambitious police office with the elite Metropolitan Police in London. When she responds to a domestic violence call, she finds the victim, Tempe Brown, trying to protect her abuser, a married man named Darren Goodall, a decorated Scotland Yard detective afraid of no one. As Philomena pursues the case against him, she not only encounters resistance from her police force colleagues but also becomes dangerously entangled with the victim-who is not at all whom she appears to be-much to the increasing endangerment of herself and Henry, her fiancée. Complicating matters is Philomena's estranged father Edward McCarthy, a powerful man who has built a criminal empire along with his brothers. Philomena has long tried to pursue her career as a police officer without her father's involvement, but as she falls under suspicion of stalking and harassing Goodall, her father becomes involved. As the situation escalates, Tempe's sinister maneuvers further entangle Philomena in a web of secrets, corruption, and murder, putting Philomena's impending marriage, career, and very survival in jeopardy... Spellbinding, suspenseful, and filled with complex characters that could be heroes or villains, Robotham has crafted a smart and propulsive thriller that's impossible to put down"-- Provided by publisher.

Philomena McCarthy is a police officer with the elite Metropolitan Police in London in Robotham's new stand-alone (after When She Was Good, 2020). Philomena has a fiancée, Henry, and a satisfying personal life, but she spends a lot of time obsessing about her job. She just can't let it go when Darren Goodall, a decorated Scotland Yard detective, gets off scot-free from accusations of abusing his wife and his lover, Tempe Brown. Philomena turns reckless when she befriends Tempe, only to find her increasingly intrusive. The puppy abandoned on the side of the road becomes a full-blooded stalking deerhound. Fellow officers are not happy with Philomena's ongoing campaign to bring Goodall down, and she can barely breathe in an atmosphere of lies and corruption. Estranged for 10 years from her father, Edward McCarthy, head of a family criminal empire, she turns to him for help in desperation. Everything intensifies and grows increasingly dangerous. An engaging first-person narrative with a surprise twist at the end. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
