Baker & Taylor
Pregnant with the child of her estranged partner, Superintendent Jack Deacon, private detective and single mother Brodie Farrell becomes caught up in a complicated conspiracy involving child abuse, cover-ups, and organized crime, a case that also involves her best friend, Daniel Hood, the man who had caused the trouble in Brodie's relationship with Jack. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
"You can waste a lot of time looking . . . or you can pay me to find it for you." So goes the slogan of Brodie Farrell's one-woman detective agency. Although Brodie has made some surprising---and dangerous---discoveries while working as a modern-day treasure hunter, none of them has turned her life upside down in quite the way that her unexpected pregnancy does.
The timing is particularly awkward because Brodie has recently separated from her partner, the prickly Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon. To complicate matters further, Detective Inspector Alix Hyde has set her sights on Deacon while simultaneously trailing a mysterious criminal---and one-time friend of Deacon's---Terry Walsh, who has a habit of springing surprises of his own.
As ever, Brodie's best friend, Daniel Hood, will do anything to help her---even taking a leave from his beloved teaching job so that he can look after her business while she takes care of the baby. But soon Daniel is preoccupied with the well-being of young Noah Selkirk, who seems to be collecting more bruises than is reasonable even for a twelve-year-old boy, and is strangely linked to the Walsh case as well. . . .
As their entanglements weave together in complex patterns, all of the parties have to face the consequences of their own mistakes. But it's the flaws that make all of us human---and perhaps that ultimately make us stronger.

Brodie Farrell has made many significant discoveries while working as a modern-day treasure hunter, but none of them turned her life upside down the way that finding she's unexpectedly pregnant will. She has already separated from her partner, the prickly and professional Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon: a new baby is a complication both of them could have done without.
And Deacon has another woman in his life: Detective Inspector Alix Hyde of the Serious Organised Crime Agency. She's on the trail of Dimmock's most elusive criminal - and one-time friend of Deacon's - Terry Walsh, who has a habit of springing surprises of his own.
Not for the first time, keenest to help - with Brodie's business as well as with sorting out her life - is her best friend Daniel Hood. But soon Daniel too is preoccupied, with the well-being of young Noah Selkirk, who seems to be collecting more bruises than is reasonable even for a twelve-year-old boy. He's from a well-respected local family - Noah's mother runs a charity, his father is a solicitor. Terry Walsh's solicitor.
As their various entanglements weave together in complex patterns, all those involved have to face the consequences of their own mistakes. But it's the flaws that make all of us human - and perhaps, ultimately, that make us stronger.
