A lucky escape. A lost identity. A lonely death.
Life has been difficult for Detective Inspector Robyn Bailley since she came out as a trans woman. Just when her family and colleagues are beginning to accept the change, a murderous attack by a suspect puts her in hospital. As just a body to be treated, the identity Robyn has tried so hard to build is stripped away, leading her to a stark choice.
On top of the desperate hunt for the attacker, there is pressure on the team from Operation Emerald, a cross-force investigation into drug smuggling. Then an anonymous body is found in a muddy trench in a picture-postcard village.
Under intense scrutiny, how will Robyn juggle her recovery and multiple investigations? And how far is she prepared to go to attain her identity?
