After an operation goes badly wrong, undercover specialist Detective Caelan Small leaves the Metropolitan Police for good. Or so she thinks. 

Soon Caelan is drawn back into a dangerous investigation. But when the main lead is suddenly murdered, all bets are off. Nothing is as it seems. Everyone is a suspect – even close colleagues.

Someone in the Met is involved and Caelan is being told to Ask No Questions.

That isn't an option: Caelan needs answers… whatever the cost.  

I got asked by the lovely Faye if I'd like to be part of this blog tour in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely love thriller how could I say no? I managed to finish this book in around two hours, which surprised me...especially after my 24 Hour Readathon a few days before, I thought I would have to be eased back into reading. Apparently not.

The story focuses on Caelan Small, a retired detective who doesn't want to work in the field anymore...and it's completely understandable after what happened in her last case; she witnessed the murder of a friend, Nikki, and a 10 year old boy, Charlie Flynn...

Now if that introduction hasn't got you intrigued, I'm not sure what will. When I read the opening page to this book, I was so excited and the first page was just the beginning of an amazing story. 

Caelan was a detective and the best that the Force had ever seen, but they need her back. And they need her now. A previous unfinished case has now resurfaced and they need answers. Caelan is the woman for the job. One of her friends travels to Egypt to bring her back and help seek the answers they need...

It's very hard to keep this a spoiler free review without telling you too much of the plot but the murders of Charlie and Nikki aren't quite as straightforward as they first seemed...

I absolutely adored Caelan. What I loved about our protagonist is that she was flawed and the author definitely wasn't concerned about making her so. I always find myself identifying more with flawed characters as I find them much more refreshing and genuine. In a game of cat and mouse, she learns who she can and can't trust and discovers some terrifying truths...

I wish I could give this book a 5. But I can't. Not because I don't want to, because the story was beautifully written and unputdownable BUT sometimes I can't stay focused on a book and this was one of them. I found myself skimming the pages, rather than reading them properly. I'm not sure if it's because I wanted to know what was happening quicker than the author could tell me but it did get quite frustrating. 

Overall, this book was bloody brill and if you're a fan of crime or thrillers, this book is definitely the one for you. Thank you for letting me be a part of the Ask No Questions blog tour!
