Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot must work together to solve two chilling crimes. On loan to a sister precinct, Cabbot draws the first case. Karen Drew seems to have lived a quiet and nearly invisible life for the past seven years. Try as she might, Annie turns up nothing in the woman's past that might have prompted someone to wheel her out to the sea and to her death. Meanwhile, in the Hayley Daniels murder, Banks has suspects galore. Then a breakthrough spins Annie's case in a shocking and surprising new direction, straight toward Banks.

Two separate murders,18 years apart, one led by Banks and the other by his old flame DI Annie Cabbot are slowly connected as the plot slowly reveals itself. I enjoyed the many details of their lives especially Annie's personal demons. This gives the reader a realistic view of their somewhat shaky relationship.
As usual there are lots of twists and turns right up to the rather surprising, rushed and perhaps even ill conceived ending. Still recommended, especially for Banks fans.
