Ex-DI Rachel Dune’s small son is missing. Then his body is discovered. Her cousin Michael is found guilty of his murder and incarcerated in a secure psychiatric unit.
Four years later, now divorced and back in the police force, Rachel discovers that Michael is being released to a less secure step-down unit, with his freedom a likely eventuality. Unable to cope with this, she decides upon revenge, assuming a new identity to hunt him down and kill him. However, as she closes in on her target, her friend Jonathan, a journalist, uncovers some unnerving information about her mother and others in her family and begins to suspect that Rachel’s perception of the truth might not be as accurate as she thinks – that she might be about to murder the wrong man…
JA Corrigan lives in Berkshire with her husband and daughter, and a very cute dog called Harley. She enjoys running, good food and wine, but not necessarily in that order.
JA Corrigan was born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. She wrote many a meandering tale as a child. They were mostly dark stories, even then.At eighteen, keen to leave her hometown and head for the dazzling lights of London, and following her love of words and history she signed up for a BA (Hons) Humanities degree, majoring in English Literature and History. Never really knowing what she wanted to do with her new degree, she worked as a waitress in Baker Street, which was possibly one of the most fun and lucrative jobs she has yet to have. She went on to teach English in Greece as well as working on a boat, managing a local Greek restaurant and coordinating airport transfers for the tourists! She loitered around in Spain for a while too.
JA decided to go back to university, completing a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy. This job always had finite lifespan, but with marriage, a family, and a mortgage, changing careers is difficult.But the burning desire to write became stronger and she knew that if she didn’t have a go at writing soon, she never would.Purposefully, she visited her local WH Smiths and bought the 2010 Artists’ and Writers’ Yearbook, a snazzy notebook and some pencils. Starting off writing short stories and magazine articles, she was lucky and early on saw her work published.
