On a winter’s night, in a grubby alleyway, in a northern town, Josh, a 17-year-old A Level student, is found stabbed to death.

The police investigation soon focuses on the four people who were in the alleyway with him that night – Josh’s girlfriend, Naomi and three members of a local gang, involved in drugs and violence.

The three gang members are charged but the police start to look more closely at Naomi. New evidence emerges which seems to point to Naomi.

Could Naomi be complicit with the gang? Is she a victim or a suspect? Or are the police looking in the wrong place? Soon her lawyers become Naomi’s only hope of a life beyond this nightmare.

An emotional exploration of the impact of a murder on family and friends combined with the roller coaster ride of twists and turns which make for a high-profile criminal investigation and trial.

Brigid has a diverse professional background, having worked as a teacher,
solicitor, and criminal barrister. Immersed in a world of crime and having
authored numerous legal articles, she was inevitably drawn to the realm of crime
fiction. Surprisingly, this literary world wasn’t so dissimilar from the reality of
the crimes she encountered in her everyday work.

Born in Glasgow to a Scottish father and Irish mother, she moved to the North
of England as a teenager. She has a son and now lives in Greater Manchester.
