The winner of the Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year rises to new heights with a career-making new novel.


The brilliant new thriller from award-winning Scottish star Denise Mina – a gripping tale of power, abuse and love gone horribly wrong. 31st August 1997 Rose Wilson is fourteen, but looks sixteen. Pimped out by her ‘boyfriend’, she has seen more of the darkness in life than someone twice her age. On the night of Princess Diana’s death – a night everyone will remember – Rose snaps and commits two terrible crimes. Now DI Alex Morrow is a witness in the case of vicious arms dealer Michael Brown. While he is held in custody, Brown’s fingerprints are found at the scene of a murder in the Red Road flats. It’s impossible that he could have been there – and Morrow just can’t let it go. • Supported by a major media campaign. • The second Paddy Meehan novel will be broadcast by the BBC later this year. • Denise is available for events and major festivals. Denise Mina is the author of ten previous novels. In 2012 she won the Theakston Crime Award for The End of the Wasp Season.
