Detective-Inspector Debra Hawkins has domestic violence in her sights. But as head of a new police unit targeting violence against women, she has hit a wall of silence.

How can she help Rana al-Sheikly, a young woman who yearns for the freedom to lead her own life while her brothers are planning to send her into a forced marriage in Iraq? And what is the connection between these men and the crime gangs that are running rife in the suburbs?

A series of anonymous emails has Deb following her personal secrets, too - back to her childhood and the murder of her police sergeant father. Who is digging up the past, threatening Debra's hard-won career, and even her life? In the tradition of the bestsellers that made her name - Fortress and Whipping Boy - Gabrielle Lord taps straight into the issues that create the headlines.

    Harrowing...and irresistibly readable - Jeffery Deaver on Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing

    A complex, masterfully paced story peppered with memorable characters and superb dialogue - Sydney Morning Herald on Feeding the Demons

    Shattered puts Gabrielle Lord in the international front rank of female crime writers - The Australian

    Lord is as good as Patricia Cornwell - The Sunday Age on The Sharp End
