Cameron McGill: single female; lesbian; around 35 years old; ex-drug user, always independent, sometimes angry, often vulnerable.
Rejected by her father, ignored by her mentally-ill mother, Cameron's older sister Carrie is the only person she really feels close to. The only one who she can truly call a friend. Then one day Carrie is found dead in an Amsterdam canal and Cameron McGill's world turns upside down.
But this is just the beginning...
In the finest tradition of crime-noir fiction, Cameron turns her back on her life and her friends, and - in the first book of a three-part trilogy - becomes an investigator and takes off for Amsterdam on her Harley Davidson to try and uncover the truth. Little does she realise that she is about to stir up a hornets' nest - and put herself in mortal danger...
"...deserves to be read by more than a niche market. Cameron has the short hair and the big Harley-Davidson of a dyke the straight world would recognise. When she can’t get over her sister’s mysterious death in Amsterdam, she sets off to conduct her own investigation... this is an excellently paced, well-plotted thriller." The Guardian
"... a fast moving tale of revenge and retribution." Ottilie Godfrey, Time Out
"...I read about three-quarters of the book without putting it down.... I found it completely enthralling."Amy Lamé (on BBC London Live)
