Product Description
 

'An outstanding crime novel.' PAULA HAWKINS

_____________________________________
Some police look the other way when a sex worker is murdered.

But Mickey can't - because her sister could be next.

If you're looking for drugs or sex in Philadelphia, Kensington Ave is the place to go.

Police officer Mickey Fitzpatrick has been working the 24th District for years. She knows most of the working women by name. She knows what desperation looks like and what people will do when they need a fix. She's become used to finding overdose victims- their numbers are growing every year. But every time she sees someone sprawled out, slumped over, cold to the touch, she also has to pray it's not her sister, Kacey.

When the bodies of murdered sex workers start turning up on the Ave, the Chief of Police is keen to bury the news. They're not the kind of victims that generate a whole lot of press anyway. But Mickey is obsessed, dangerously so, with finding the perpetrator - before Kacey is the next victim.

'A remarkable, profoundly moving novel about the ties that bind and the irrevocable wounds of childhood. It's also a riveting mystery, perfectly paced. I loved every page of it.' DENNIS LEHANE
