It was supposed to be a quiet overnight ferry journey from Norway to Newcastle. Kate Beauchamp, police detective, on leave to recover from a traumatic serial killer murder investigation, isn't planning anything more strenuous than a meal and a kip in the ferry lounge. Until it turns into everyone's worst nightmare: a ferry disaster that claims almost all lives, except those strong enough to survive.
Kate is one of the survivors, but the disaster is only the tip of a bigger plot that threatens to consume the tattered remains of Kate's sanity . . . A brutal killer who preys on women, child slavery, and Greek mythology intermingle in a story of compelling complexity and stunning ferocity that will leave you breathless.
