ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Philomena McCarthy hasn't spoken to her father in years. It's more than awkward, because after a childhood trauma she decided to join the police, and Dad and his brothers are notorious for their lifelong criminal activities. She doesn't let on to many people - and certainly very few of her colleagues in the London Metropolitan Police- that she's so connected, though her fiance knows. When a routine call from a concerned neighbour turns out to be domestic violence - a decorated policeman beating his mistress - and it is hushed up at the expense of her reputation, Phil's sympathies lie with the victim,Tempe, and a tentative friendship is struck up. But as time goes by, something more sinister is also happening, and Phil turns to her father for information and help, despite wondering how much he knows and how much he has done... A nice and twisty tale from the master of page-turning-keep-reading-didn't-see-that-coming crime!  Lindy

For as long as we both shall live? A pulse-racing standalone thriller by the #1 bestselling author of The Secrets She Keeps, now a major TV series Philomena McCarthy has defied the odds and become a promising young officer with the Metropolitan Police despite being the daughter of a notorious London gangster. Called to the scene of a domestic assault one day, she rescues a bloodied young woman, Tempe Brown, the mistress of a decorated detective. The incident is hushed up, but Phil has unwittingly made a dangerous enemy with powerful friends.

Determined to protect each other, the two women strike up a tentative friendship. Tempe is thoughtful and sweet and makes herself indispensable to Phil, but sinister things keep happening and something isn't quite right about the stories Tempe tells. When a journalist with links to Phil's father and to the detective is found floating in the Thames, Phil doesn't know where to turn, who to blame or who she can trust.

This exhilarating thriller from the bestselling author - whose books have sold more than 6 million copies - is Michael Robotham's finest page-turner yet.
