Lorraine Page was a promising lieutennant until she kills a young boy whilst drunk on duty. She then continues drining more and more until she has lost everything- her husband, children, house and dignity. Some years later we catch up with her again after having been admitted to a hospital Rosie (a former alcoholic) takes her in. A serial killer is on the loose and Lorraine has seen something which makes her invaluable to the police. She finds herself eventually at the centre of the investigation.
I really enjoyed this book but did feel that it could have been trimmed by about 50 pages or so. Towards the end it all seemed a little too protracted. Had it not been for this it would definitely be a 5* read for me and I am now going to go and search for the next in the series!
