'The relentless pace weaves in surprising, disturbing twists that teeter on the brink of horror.' The Sun
Patricia Cornwell called J.S. Law's writing 'addictively readable' and now Lieutenant Dani Lewis returns in a gripping 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 take her back to the dark conspiracy revealed aboard the submarine Tenacity. And closer to a killer who continues to taunt her from prison.
Is this a simple missing person case, or is the hunter about to become the prey?
'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
Further praise for J.S. Law:
'J.S. Law's taut crime novel oozes authenticity. I read this in a day and can't wait for the next in what will undoubtedly be an explosive series' - Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO
'An impressive debut...gripping, entertaining reading' The Times
'J. S. Law is a powerful new voice, and his heroine Dan Lewis lives up to the title, Tenacity. She is fearless and doesn't quit in the faces of all odds. The murky world of submarines and murder make Tenacity addictively readable, and memories of it linger like dreams' Patricia Cornwell
