Although this is book 4 in the series, it can be read as a standalone crime thriller. Book 5 in the series will be released later this year, around September time. I really hope you enjoy it!
In the golden morning light, a beautiful young woman lies diagonally across the bed, dressed for a night out, her long lashes pressed against her cheeks as if she’s sleeping. But the crimson that creeps across the sheets tells the story of an innocent woman who has drawn her last breath…
Detective Madison Harper is pulled away from Thanksgiving preparations when a local care worker, Terri Summers, is found dead in her home on the outskirts of Lost Creek, Colorado. Terri’s inconsolable mother can’t understand who would hurt such a kind soul who had dedicated her life to helping others. But analysis of the blood spatter at the scene indicates Terri knew her attacker, that she looked them right in the eye before her life was taken.
The awkward way Terri’s body is positioned catches Madison’s attention. Carefully moving her, she finds a bracelet—possibly a child’s—with a single red bead clenched in the woman’s fist, as if she was hiding it. It’s the lead Madison so desperately needs, but the sudden death of one of her own team sends the investigation into a tailspin.
With her coworkers crumbling around her, Madison must work day and night to trace the bracelet and crack the case. But when she’s dragged back into the disappearance of a woman and child from years ago, and finds a link to someone in her own family, can Madison stop this twisted killer before another precious life is taken? And at what cost?
An absolutely addictive and twist-packed crime thriller guaranteed to get your heart racing and make your jaw drop!

I’m delighted to announce that books 1, 2 and 3 in my bestselling Detective Madison Harper crime series will be translated into Czech! Albatros media, via their Domino imprint, will be publishing Shadow Falls this autumn, followed by Cry for Help in spring 2023 and Little Girl Taken in autumn 2023.
These are the first of my books to be translated into a different language so I’m very excited. This series has a large following with a loyal fan base, so to know it will reach an even wider audience is very special.
The series follows a detective (Madison Harper) who spent six years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit, and a former priest-in-training-turned PI (Nate Monroe) who spent seventeen years on death row before finally being exonerated. The pair are thrown together in book 1 to search for a missing girl, and soon realise they need to find a way of supporting each other through the injustices they’ve experienced while also trying to return to their normal lives. Readers say the unique backgrounds and supportive relationship between the pair is what makes this series worth reading, along with the interesting plots of course!
If there are any other other publishers out there who would like to translate the Madison Harper series, please do get in touch via the contact page on my website. I can then put you in touch with my publisher. Let’s send Madison and Nate global!
I’ll finish with a reminder that book 4 in the series – Gone to Her Grave – is out in less than 2 weeks (April 13th) and is now available to pre-order on amazon. It’s had the highest number of pre-orders for any of my books so far and I can’t wait for readers to see what Madison and Nate have been up to!
