From this acclaimed writer a new thriller of knife-edge suspense and masterful plotting...

The little girl appeared inCentral Park: red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect - except for the blood on her shoulder.   It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree.   Poor child , people thought.   And then they found the body in the tree.

For NYPD detective, Kathy Mallory, there is something about the girl that she understands.   Mallory is damaged, they say, but she can tell a kindred spirit.   And this one will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes; murders stretching back fifteen years, blackmail and complicity and a particular cruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognise.   In the next few weeks, Kathy Mallory will deal with them all... in her own way.

Roland Britten, accountant and amateur jockey, awakens one morning to find he can't move his hands—because he is tied up with netting, held captive where no light penetrates and no amount of yelling will get any attention. But why?

He knew that this was the latest in a series of events that had begun when he decided to ride in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, a race second only to the Grand National in the lives of British steeplechase riders. As an amateur jockey, Roland had pleased no one when he took Tapestry past the finish line first in what turned out to be the worst Gold Cup in history. As an accountant whose clientele included horse owners and jockeys alike, he also knew more about the private financial affairs of the racing world than any other person on the racecourse. Was winning the Gold Cup cause enough for his kidnapping? Or was it his knowledge of the books?
