Alex Quick investigates the murder of a close family friend in this intriguing, intricately-plotted mystery
In her former career as a police detective, Alex Quick was exposed to some brutally violent crimes – but none as horrific as this. A badly mutilated corpse is discovered in a field, the victim castrated, the word ‘cheat’ carved across his chest. The dead man was a close family friend of Alex, and his sister has asked her to find out who killed him – and why.

Although they’d been friends as long as she can remember, how well did Alex really know the late Tristan Huber? Why would someone murder him in such a violent and cruel way? Whoever she questions, Alex finds that people are reluctant to talk, keeping things back from her – including Tristan’s sister, Dimsie. The more Alex uncovers, the clearer it becomes that Tristan Huber was not who, or what, he appeared to be. But is she prepared for the shocking truth?
