A Deadly Thaw

'Gives the Scandi authors a run for their money.' Yrsa Sigurðardóttir

Every secret has consequences.

Autumn 2004
In Bampton, Derbyshire, Lena Fisher is arrested for suffocating her husband, Andrew.

Spring 2016
A year after Lena's release from prison, Andrew is found dead in a disused mortuary.

Who was the man Lena killed twelve years ago, and who committed the second murder? When Lena disappears, her sister, Kat, sets out to follow a trail of clues delivered by a mysterious teenage boy. Kat must uncover the truth - before there's another death . . .

A Deadly Thaw confirms Sarah Ward's place as one of the most exciting new crime writers.
