The second thriller in the sharp, funny and moving Sasha Dawson series, named by The Times as a crime book of the month.
Three years ago, Danny 'Abs' Cruikshank, star of Laid in Essex!, was living the dream. And then, on the night of the party, everything changed.
It was supposed to be an intimate weekend gathering. Just a few close friends in a remote cottage in Wales. But after a night of heavy drinking in the village pub, a local girl was reported missing, presumed dead. Abs and his friends had been the last to see her alive.
No-one was ever charged, but the controversy destroyed Abs's career. So now, three years later, the celebrity who once captured the heart of millions is opening Southend's new branch of Quidstore. And then one of Abs's mates is murdered. Does someone know what really happened that night in Wales? DI Sasha Dawson and her team must race against the clock to find the killer before they strike again — but first she must discover what happened to Rhiannon Jenkins on the night she vanished. Will the truth bury Abs? Or set him free?
