Molly McQueen needs a new challenge. Her move to Australia hasn't worked out and now she's back home and ready to start her new venture, McQueen's Agency. But Molly soon finds that hiring temps out to local businesses is tough going, until the day a lucrative job comes in which seems almost too good to be true.
On her first day at the new job, Molly senses that something isn't quite right - but the Agency desperately needs the work. And when Molly begins to discover more about her employers and what they're really up to, she suddenly finds herself in grave danger.

I’ve not been able to connect anyone to Harry. It’s turned into a dead end, I’m afraid, but I’ll still keep trying. In the meantime, just watch out when you’re out of the house. The man who attacked you is still out there so be careful. I wish you would get Jock to walk Rover.’ Tam shook his head. ‘They’ve been so good to me and I can’t keep playing on their good nature.
