Meet DCI Emily Baxter, a detective whose life is as complicated as the cases she investigates. An action-packed serial killer thriller for fans of Tess Gerritsen, MJ Arlidge and LJ Ross

A body is found hanging from Brooklyn Bridge, the word ‘BAIT’ carved into the chest.

In London a copycat killer strikes, branded with the word ‘PUPPET’, forcing DCI Emily Baxter into an uneasy partnership with the detectives on the case, Special Agents Rouche and Curtis.

Each time they trace a suspect, the killer is one step ahead. With the body count rising on both sides of the Atlantic, can they learn to trust each other and identify who is holding the strings before it is too late?
