From The Shadows

He watches. He waits.
He kills.

24-year-old Mary Kendricks is a vivacious young teacher
living in the quiet Northern town of Highford, her beauty turning heads
wherever she goes. But when she catches the eye of Robert Carter, initial flattery
quickly turns dangerous. Wherever she goes, Carter is not far behind and Mary soon
becomes stifled by his attention, telling friends of her fears that he’s
getting too close.

And then Mary’s body is discovered, stabbed to death in her
own bedroom.

The case quickly garners the attention of the press, all
baying for Carter’s blood. It’s the case no lawyer wants to touch — until
criminal defence lawyer Dan Grant, aided by investigator Jayne Brett, agrees to
represent Carter.

While Robert Carter admits to being at her house when it
happened — the bloody fingerprint on her wall placing him at the scene — he
insists he is innocent of her death. The police believe they’ve got their man,
but as they delve further into the investigation, Grant and Brett think the
detectives might be looking in the wrong place — leaving the real murderer to
walk free.

In order to catch a killer before another victim is
discovered, Brett and Grant need to risk everything. Including their own lives…

unputdownable, race-against-time legal crime thriller will hook you until the
very last page. If you like Angela Marsons, Val McDermid or John Grisham, then
you won’t want to miss this book.
