But a friend of Ingraham's, former cop and prosecutor Dismas Hardy, isn't so sure. And Hardy has to find out, because a stone-cold killer, now paroled, once threatened to kill Ingraham and Dismas Hardy both. To save his own skin, Hardy must face down liars and killers on both sides of the law.

Is this a simple missing person case, or is the hunter about to become the prey? Patricia Cornwell called J.S. Law's writing 'addictively readable' and now Lieutenant Dani Lewis returns in an edge-of-the-seat crime thriller that fans of M.J. Arlidge and Elly Griffiths will love. A young woman has disappeared without trace from a Navy ship - is it a missing person case or something far darker? Lieutenant Dani Lewis, star investigator of the Navy's Kill Team, must mine the shadows of the ship and the secrets of its crew to uncover why the girl might run, or what might motivate a predator to take her. But as Dani relentlessly pursues the truth, threads emerge which lead her to a dark conspiracy from the past. And closer to a killer who continues to taunt her from prison... 'A gutsy kick-ass heroine, fast-paced twisty plot and an unusual background make for a gripping read.' Woman & Home 'In his first Dani thriller...tension festered in the claustrophobic confines of submarine HMS Tenacity. The Fear Within moves up a level, hothousing the fears and urges of the warped and needy in the tighter spaces of the human mind' The Sun Why readers are raving about THE FEAR WITHIN: 'A very good read' ***** Goodreads Reviewer 'I really really loved THE FEAR WITHIN' ***** Goodreads Reviewer 'Fast paced and well plotted' ***** Goodreads Reviewer Further praise for J.S. Law: 'J.S. Law's taut crime novel oozes authenticity.
