'A cracking read.'Val McDermid'One of the year’s best urban crime stories. Topical, gripping and perfectly paced, you won’t be able to put it down.'Better Reading

'The Rip pulls you under and tosses your emotions around like flotsam bobbing up and down on the waves.'Queenland Reviewers Collective

A young woman living on the street has to keep her wits about her. Or her friends... but when the drugs kick in that can be hard.

Anton has been looking out for her. She was safe with him. But then Steve came along.

He had something over Anton. Must have. But he had a flat they could crash in. And gear in his pocket. And she can't stop thinking about it. A good hit makes everything all right.

But the flat smells weird.
There's a lock on Steve's bedroom door.
And the guy is intense.

The problem is, sometimes you just don't know you are in too deep, until you are drowning.
