Echoes of Lies

UK Publisher: Allison & Busby
US Publisher: St Martin's Press

Brodie Farrell finds things for a living, and when she’s asked to locate the whereabouts of Daniel Hood, she sees nothing suspicious in the request. She finds the young man, passes the details on to her client, and commends herself on a job well done. But when the young man is found brutally tortured and left for dead, Brodie is overcome with guilt.

Still blaming herself when Daniel asks for help, Brodie finds it impossible to do the sensible thing and walk away. He needs to understand what happened: Until the attack, he’d never known an enemy in the world. The men who hurt him were looking for someone named Sophie, and Daniel knows no one by that name.

Finding the authors of Daniel’s misfortune, in the end, resolves nothing. It only leads them both into a deeper, more complex tragedy than either imagined possible.
