Stella Darnell was the detective's daughter. Now she's solving cases of her own.
 
Jack Harmon craves silence and a bird's eye view. From his new home in Palmyra Tower, he can raise binoculars to watch over west London. If he watches for long enough, he will learn who has secrets. He will learn who plans to kill. But Jack does not see everything. A man has died beneath a late-night train, and Jack's friend Stella, the detective's daughter, suspects it could have been murder. Now Jack and Stella are stirring up the past with questions that no one wants answered—questions that lead to an unsolved case nearly 20 years old.

Review:

'Lesley Thomson's accidental detective Stella is back in this creepy thriller' Diva. 'As this intriguing plot moves from the 1980s to the present day the reader is treated to haunting descriptions of London, a cast of fascinating characters, and an eerie tale of how the past can wait to impact on the present' Good Book Guide. 'A very good mystery ... Even without the Ripper, these surroundings exude menace, a feeling that will grip you until the very impressive end' Suspense Magazine. 'The characters are well-defined, and both Stella and Jack would appear to display classic OCD elements, making them excellent candidates for both cleaning and detective work ... addictive story line' Best Selling Crime Thrillers. 'With hints of the supernatural and several sneaky red herrings laid in your path to trip you up, this sinister and murderous tale gradually creeps under your skin. Jack and Stella are complex individuals, and as far away from your generic detective as you can possibly get' LoveReading. 'It cracks along at a nifty pace, throwing surprises up along the way, and builds to a pulsating finale ... a satisfying plot full of twists and turns that keep you eager to discover more' The Moustachioed Reader. 'A wonderfully eerie London setting and a suitably chilling plot ... Lesley Thomson is now firmly established as one of our leading crime writers' Elly Griffiths. 'A clever mystery plot ... its excellence is in the characters, all credible and memorable' Literary Review. 'A haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot' The Sunday Times.
