What you need to know before your trail

The body is found by the river, near a spot popular with runners.

With a serial rapist at work in the area, DI Zigic and DS Ferreira are initially confused when the Hate Crimes Unit is summoned to the scene. Until they discover that the victim, Corinne Sawyer, was born Colin Sawyer.

Police records reveal there have been violent attacks on trans women in the local area. Was Corinne a victim of mistaken identity? Or has the person who has been targeting trans women stepped up their campaign of violence? With tensions running high, and the force coming under national scrutiny, this is a complex case and any mistake made could be fatal..

Travel Guide


Peterborough’s Hate Crimes unit is a very unique place to work and in this novel visit. DS Ferreira and Detective Inspector Zigic are back the lead, on the search for a killer and more in what seems to be a quiet market town on the outside but inside, it seems to bleed dark…

The novel is set in Peterborough and the dark dark woods of Ferrywood, a popular beauty spot and place where walkers, families and joggers like to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the town. It’s also a major crime scene in this book. Such real names of streets, parks and surrounding areas places the action firmly on the map and for anyone familiar with Peterborough, this will send a chill up your spine.

There’s a nice nod to one of the local tourist spots  – The Nene Valley Railway

The transgender community and the problems they have are sensitively portrayed.

Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

Eva Dolan for me writes a very unique brand of crime fiction. It’s gritty and very hard hitting yes, but it manages to include some of the most marginalised people in our society in a way we start to understand them in new ways. Some writers would be afraid to look at how transgender people are treated – but not Eva – and kudos to her for that. The uncomfortable nature of these issues and the way Eva writes about it in the cold light of day make for some really heartbreaking and gripping reading.

Characters are fleshed out..plots are picked and primed, the time and place are evoked with panache. The issues dealt with in modern society are new and ones which continue to grow, and putting them at the heart of a gripping drama does bring them into the spotlight.

No worries about Eva standing on her soapbox either – this isn’t a social conscience kind of novel but one which rather shows society as it is – no matter how unflattering the light and angle.

Corrinne is a very memorable character for many reasons. Eva Dolan is a memorable author too.  She writes with a scalpel and cuts open the very worst scars of society.
