This dark and dazzling debut introduces a fabulously flawed and determined heroine reminiscent of Jane Tennison. She was slipping away. The further she fell, the closer the clouds seemed to come. Wispy transparent slipstreams of white. Cirrus. Pain smashed her head. Floating... W...hen journalist Chrissie O'Brian lands a senior job at The Argus, she is desperate to escape the nightmares of her past and make a fresh start. Her life may be a mess but her job is something she can do better than anyone else - and the only thing that's keeping her sane, and in this world.

But when a female dockworker whose warnings Chrissie ignored turns up dead, she blames herself and becomes obsessed with investigating the case. But she is handicapped by her daily battle to resist numbing the pain of her past with alcohol and pills - a battle she doesn't always win.

When it's clear someone will do anything to stop her publishing the story, Chrissie decides it's time to take matters into her own hands.
