But when his father volunteers his services to help clear the yard for the nice lady who lives across the street, all thoughts of running off back to Brooklyn soon disappear.

Taken in hand by Kit, the town Sheriff’s daughter, Brandon learns that ‘sleepy’ Brackers Lake isn’t so sleepy after all. The brutal but “completely weird” murder of a local councilman points to dark secrets lurking behind the town’s pretty lace curtains and picket fences. When Brandon and Kit discover that his new employer may be party to those secrets, it leads them towards danger of a sort they cannot begin to comprehend.

An ocean away, DCI Jamie Carver is staring at a photograph purporting to show that someone he thought was dead, may be alive and living somewhere in New York state. Uncertain if it is genuine or someone’s idea of a sick joke, he is rapidly coming to a stark conclusion. There’s only one way to find out…

The sixth in the Jamie Carver Series, Breathe Again picks up where Death In Mind left off, with a method of killing that echoes one Carver has seen before – and the possibility that the horror he thought was all in the past, may not be.
