EMMA KAVANAGH A Perfect Victim
The gripping new novel from expert police psychologist Emma Kavanagh, author of Falling, Hidden, The Missing Hours and The Killer on the Wall.
When an attractive, well-dressed woman is found dying on a Chelsea street, it seems clear to DS Thea Walsh that this murder will be wrapped up quickly. The witness who found her reacted quickly and respected the crime scene.
And then there is the victim herself. She is wearing a wedding ring and has recently had a child, so someone will be looking for her. She is, to all intents and purposes, the perfect victim.
Until she isn’t. Because what if your perfect victim has no name?
What if the woman that everyone should be looking for, can't be found?
Emma Kavanagh trained as a psychologist and, after university started her own business as a psychology consultant, specialising in human performance in extreme situations. For seven years she provided training and consultation for police forces, NATO and military personnel throughout the UK and Europe.

HARRIET CUMMINGS For Every Creature a dark family drama from the author of We All Begin As Strangers. Perfect for fans of lianne Moriarty’s Truly Madly Guilty.
72-year-old Nettie still hears the occasional gossiping, but most have forgotten what she did.
Now, living alone in a run-down farmhouse, she surrounds herself with memories of her late husband and estranged daughter Catherine.
When Catherine’s friend James appears out of the blue, Nettie is grateful for the company and keen to learn more about her daughter.
But soon James starts asking Nettie questions she doesn’t want to answer; about some things she can’t remember, and others she’s tried to forget.
As her memory fails her, how can Nettie be certain she did the terrible things everyone says she did?
