Close to the Edge

(The second book in the Detectives Martin & Stern series)
A novel by


Two detectives under fire. One missing student. No answers.

Chaos breaks out as DS Gabe Martin leaves Southampton Crown Court. Gunshots ring out. She and DI Juliet Stern are hit. The culprit disappears without a trace.

Despite her injuries, Gabe is determined to work. She's assigned to the search for missing art student Henry Garside. As she delves into his case, it becomes clear nothing about the investigation is as it seems.

Is Henry’s disappearance an isolated incident? Was the shooting a simple act of retribution – or is there some far bigger and more sinister at play? When Juliet asks for her help in the search for their shooter, Gabe feels powerless to refuse, even if it means meddling where she shouldn't. Increasingly caught between her loyalty to Juliet and her job, Gabe becomes dangerously close to crossing a line...

A gripping immersive crime thriller from an exciting new talent. Perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and Susie Steiner.
