Cornish Crime Series Book 1 



A small Cornish town; two women share a past. One a lawyer with no respect for the law, the other a doctor, with no respect for human life; both trapped by rage.  What happens when their paths cross and history catches up with them? 

Can they escape the cages they have built?


Lawyer Claire McBride is a good person. She believes in fair play and operating within the rules but when told by her consultant, the cancer she thought she’d beaten, is terminal, she descends into a dark and alien place, at odds with her character; compelled to right wrongs and punish those who have caused harm and avoided justice. She begins her vendetta wrongly believing she is taking back ownership of what little life she has left. She doesn’t know there is someone from her past, far more dangerous than her, who is really calling the shots. 


Issy Moran, Claire’s consultant; a bitter, deranged, narcissist, has for years routinely ended the lives of patients she judges unworthy of treatment and family members who have stood in the way of her driving ambition. From childhood she has harboured a grudge against Claire and when by chance, they meet she seizes the opportunity to satisfy her twisted desire to first befriend her and then destroy her.


With her life is in the balance will Claire live to face the music for taking the law into her own hands?
