The compelling new thriller starring the unforgettable Brigid Quinn.

Rage Against the Dying introduced us to one of the most refreshing protagonists in US crime writing – brigid Quinn. A former Fed trying to live a normal life after years in the most twisted of company – she’s still entangled in the guilt, violence and rage inevitable after a career spent tracking killers.

Now brigid is drawn into the case of a man on Death Row, awaiting execution for the murder of his wife and three children. Something tells brigid that an injustice is about to be done, but when she investigates the circumstances behind the convictions, she finds the truth is even more shocking.

Becky Masterman created her heroine, brigid Quinn, while working as an editor for a forensic science and law enforcement press. Her debut thriller, Rage Against the Dying, was a finalist for the Edgar Award and the CWA Gold Dagger.
