Book 1 in the DC Jack Warr series
The first book in a brand-new series by Lynda La Plante, the internationally bestselling author who “practically invented the thriller.”
An exciting and action-packed new thriller, with roots in La Plante’s bestselling novels, Widows and Widows’ Revenge.
Jack Warr is a young DC with the Metropolitan Police. Charming but aimless, Jack can’t seem to find his place in the world – until he’s drawn into an investigation that turns his life upside down.
After a fire at a derelict cottage, a badly charred body is discovered, along with the burnt remnants of millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes – the hidden legacy of Dolly Rawlins and her gang of Widows.
Jack’s assignment to the case coincides with an investigation into his own past. As he searches for the truth about his identity, Jack finds himself increasingly drawn into a murky underworld of corruption and crime. Those millions have not been forgotten – and Jack will stop at nothing to find the truth.
