If it had been me, she would not have stopped until there was justice.

Just as DI Harriet Sloane turns forty, an old case reopens from before she was born. In the late 1970s, Karen Ward was a teenager when she was murdered just yards away from her Belfast home. At the time, people thought they saw Karen with a man, but time has moved on and now witnesses are thin on the ground. With the help of the victim’s sister, Sloane must travel back in time, while her own family evolves and someone from her past resurfaces. Codes, and rules, need to be broken if justice will ever be served.
