THE TIMES THRILLER OF THE MONTH

'Vivid and packed with journalistic lore ... Mixing pulsating derring-do with painstaking detective work' Sunday Times

A Bangladeshi camp. A British ambassador. A Harley Street doctor.

Investigative journalist Casey Benedict is used to working on stories that will take her from the bottom to the top of society – stories with a huge human cost. And her latest case is no different.

A frantic message is found hidden in clothes manufactured for the British high street. They take the girls

Casey and her team at the Post know they are on the brink of a major exposé but identifying the factories in which the clothes have been made is one challenge, following the trail of those taken is another.

Their attempts to find the girls will take Casey from her London newsroom across the world and into the very heart of families who will be destroyed if what she uncovers is ever revealed.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"Holly Watt is a master storyteller and The Dead Line provides exceptional and indisputable proof of this. A dynamic, globetrotting thriller with a strong, compassionate heart and indominable spirit." - Stephen Mack Jones

"A rip-roarer of a thriller that sucked me in and wouldn’t let go until the finish. Like To the Lions, The Dead Line confronts some of the worst of human nature head on, but also finds hope in the complex heroes who stand against it. In Casey Benedict, we have a brilliant creation who is relentless in her pursuit of the truth. I find myself wishing there were more Caseys in the world." - Gytha Lodge
