A Deadly Thaw by Sarah Ward. Published by St. Martin’s

Lena Grey spent 14 years in jail for killing her husband, a crime she never defended herself for. Now, not long after her release a man is found murdered at an old morgue. The victim is Lena’s husband. So who was killed 14 years earlier and why did Lena lie about his identity? DI Francis Sadler is gobsmacked. How did the original investigation go so wrong? Then Lena disappears. Police hope to get information from Lena’s sister, Kat, who is absolutely astounded with the turn of events. Then Kat starts getting little packages from someone who says he knows where Lena is. This twisted tale leads back in time to the sister’s childhoods. The second book in this outstanding series is even better than the first. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, no worries; this can be read as a standalone story. Ward is an author to watch, she’s going places, and fast.
