When you’re working undercover the smallest mistake can cost you your life.
Detective Constable Bailey Morgan has been out of the undercover game since her last job went horribly wrong, leaving her with scars inside and out.
When her colleague Alice is found dead whilst working deep cover in a women’s prison, Bailey steps in to replace her.
Working alone, Bailey embarks on a dangerous journey through the murky underbelly of the prison and soon discovers that Alice’s death was part of a spate of brutal murders.
Surrounded by prison officers, criminals and lowlifes, the slightest mistake could cost Bailey her life. Illicit drug trafficking, prison gangs and corruption are just some of the things she’s up against… and behind it all lurks a sinister and terrifying secret that will truly test her survival instincts.
Heart-stopping and gripping. Perfect for the fans of hit TV shows such as Line of Duty, Orange is the New Black and Bad Girls.
This is the first book in what I hope is a series (DC Bailey Morgan) by Caro Savage.
Bailey Morgan is brought out of retirement and brought back undercover to find out the truth about who in the jail killed her friend, Alice and where the drug smuggling ring was located.
Not long after they bring Bailey into the jail, another inmate is killed in a very similar way to Alice. Then Bailey finds a way to ingratiate herself with the clique that is running the drugs in the prison. Then the tension really starts to ramp up.
This was a very exciting story. If you are into prison dramas, definitely check this one out. It is basically a thriller with undertones of a police procedural. I was loving every minute of this. Plus, there is a big twist at the end that I don’t think anyone will see coming. What a wonderful read!
