Twelve years ago, Noah Palmer went for a bike ride and never came home. His body is found in the Box Hill woods, a five-pointed star carved in his chest. He is the fourth victim of a serial killer who has never been caught.
Now, a young woman is involved in a shooting outside Harrods in central London. Her DNA shows a familial match to the Box Hill cold case.
Detective Rob Miller leads the investigation. But there’s not much to go on. Just when he thinks he’s got a lead, the case is turned on its head.
To solve this mystery, Rob’s going to have to go off-book, potentially putting his career — and already complicated love life — on the line.
Can he stop the Box Hill killer?
A TWIST IN EVERY CHAPTER — YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO PUT DOWN THIS UNSTOPPABLE CRIME MYSTERY.
This gripping page-turner is perfect for fans of Helen H. Durrant, James Oswald, Joy Ellis, Angela Marsons, L.J. Ross, Alex Smith and J.M. Dalgliesh.
MEET THE DETECTIVE
DI ROB MILLER
Detective Inspector Rob Miller of the Met is finally given his first case as Senior Investigating Officer. For an ambitious, young detective, this is a dream come true. He’s gunning for promotion, and will do anything for his job, but can he also keep his personal life in check?
The Murder Investigation Team is based out of leafy Putney, with its overgrown often-flooded riverbanks. One way the river leads into central London, the other out into the countryside. It’s an idyllic setting that masks a criminal underworld.

it was amazing
Thank you Netgalley and Joffe Books for the eARC.
This book was very good, I enjoyed it a lot.
DC Rob Miller and his team, after a violent robbery, discover that a girl, Rachel, who was wrongfully thought to be in on it, has DNA linking her to a 12-year old case of 4 murdered men, who were posed into a white circle, with a pentagram carved into their chests.
The case is a tough one, after all, 12 years is a long time to go back and investigate. On top of that, Rob is going to be a father, his new Superintendent is a strange and unhelpful character, a brutal murder of a psychologist is added to his workload and catching the cold case serial killer proves almost impossible.
It’s a well written book, with well fleshed out characters, a twisty mystery and a surprising ending. Very much recommended!
