"Brilliant in twisting the tension tauter with each page". ("Guardian"). Caro Ramsay was born in Glasgow and now lives in a village on the west coast of Scotland. This is her fourth DI Anderson and DS Costello novel, following the critically acclaimed "Absolution", "Singing to the Dead" and "Dark Water".
