Who killed Sophie Washington? Early one cold November morning in the run-down seaside resort of Whitley Bay, the body of a young girl is discovered. Found abandoned five minutes walk from her home, her face has been mutilated beyond recognition. DI Jack Brady, just back on active duty after recovering from a vicious shooting incident, is on the edge. Struggling to deal with his marriage break-up and his tortured past, his problems intensify when long-standing friend and colleague DI James Matthews confidentially reveals that he was with the victim the night of her murder. Brady's loyal deputy, the clean-cut, Detective Sergeant Harry Conrad and the attractive and highly-respected police psychologist, Dr Amelia Jenkins are assigned with Brady to solve the victim's murder.

But the investigation becomes increasingly compromised as Brady realises that Matthews is holding something back from him that could be vital to the case. As Brady delves ever deeper into Sophie's life, he comes to realise that the three men who should have protected her during her short life are the chief suspects in her murder: her teacher, her step-father and a police detective.

Brady finds himself unravelling a metaphorical thread that eventually makes him re-evaluate not only the seemingly blameless life of the victim, but more disturbingly, Matthews's motivation and ultimately his own.

I'd never heard of this author but when I spotted this on a charity shop shelf it was just calling to me to buy it! I'm glad I did as what I got was a good gritty thriller of the sort I love. Not as gruesome or as hard hitting as Mo Hayder or Stuart MacBride but nevertheless a tale that kept me entertained to the end. I'll be looking out for more of this series featuring DI Jack Brady....maybe he'll end up on my wishlist with the other Jacks - Reacher, Caffery & Nightingale :o)

Read as part of the 2011 ULTIMATE CHALLENGE (#124)

A friend passed me this book with a pile of others to read. She had bought it in a charity shop. I really enjoyed it - never read any Danielle Ramsay before, but definitely will do now. I'm going to pass it on and lets see where it ends up!!
