It is quite different from my other novels; for a start it is narrated in the first person,and it is set in a real location, Lees in Oldham. The story starts in the New Year of 1990, when Jaz Paul is beginning a new job in a new school. She has moved from Bristol where she was head of faculty in a good school, to a temporary post in a comprehensive on the outskirts of Lees. Her brother has been recently widowed and she uses this as an excuse to move to be near him; however, there are more personal reasons which have really prompted the sudden flight north. Her friends call her impetuous, stubborn too, but this can’t explain her ‘love at first sight’ moment with a man who will change her life. She is unprepared for the danger and violence which awaits her… a murderer has butchered three women… is Jaz his next target… and who is he?
