TO PROTECT HER OWN HORRIFIC PAST

A PROSECUTOR MUST CRACK A MURDER & TRAFFICKING RING BEFORE THE POLICE DO

When the head of the migration board is shot dead, no shortage of suspects arise, including his wife. But no one expects to find mysterious, child-size fingerprints inside his childless home.

Public prosecutor Jana Berzelius steps in to lead the investigation. Young, brilliant, but emotionally cold, Jana, like her famous prosecutor father, won’t be intimidated by threats. She is steely, aloof, impenetrable. That is, until the body of a boy is found dead on a deserted beach… and with him, the murder weapon that killed the official.

Berzelius is drawn deeper into the case when she recognizes something familiar on his small, scarred body. Cut deep into his flesh are familiar initials that scream child trafficking and trigger in her a flash of memory from her own dark childhood. Her connection to this boy has been carved with a deliberate malice that penetrates her soul.

Now, to protect her own horrific hidden past, she must find the real suspect behind these murders and uncover the heart of an insidious child-trafficking ring before the police do.

International bestselling author Emelie Schepp introduces us to the enigmatic, unforgettable Jana Berzelius in this first novel of a suspenseful, chilling trilogy.
