What you need to know before your trail

In the dead of night someone starts a fire in a home for underprivileged children in Aberdeen. The flames spread quickly, and one person doesn’t make it out alive.

But the victim wasn’t found in their bedroom; they were discovered locked inside a secret basement underground. As DI Eve Hunter and her team search the blackened ruins, the case takes them into even darker territory.

Soon Eve unearths a horrific discovery at the heart of the property – one that turns the whole investigation on its head. Everyone in this home has something to hide, but who has a secret worth killing for?

Travel Guide


A grim and gripping read set in Scotland’s Granite city. The atmosphere is dark and depressing but then there is a fire in a children’s home. There, a body is found in the ashes but there are signs that the boy was not killed by the flames.

The city of Aberdeen is well evoked and there are many streets and areas on the map. Not so many nice areas you would want to visit in real life – but these are fictional representations after all!

Duthie Park is well worth a visit. Maybe not with Deborah Masson though haha
