Why did investigative journalist Jamie Maxden die? The coroner says it was suicide. The case is closed. Only one man fights to reopen it. Will Applewood is sure Jamie was about to expose a scandal that would shame the British food industry. But Will is notorious for his conspiracy theories. No one listens to him. In despair he turns to his barrister, Trish Maguire.
Felled by food poisoning in the middle of Will's case against a huge supermarket chain, Trish is ready to believe any story about dangers lurking inside the pretty packaging of the food we eat. Even though she has more than enough to do already with the trial, an attempt to save a child at terrible risk, and plenty of emotional complications of her own, she agrees to help.
Will's campaign takes her deep into the countryside, revealing a world that seems quite different from the metropolitan life she knows. But human nature doesn't change---whatever the environment.
Moving between the ravishing landscape and the grim depths of the inner city, trying to save lives and sanity, inexhaustible Trish is driven into a crusade---both personal and professional---that combines excitement, drama, and agonizing human tragedy.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Keep Me Alive
Chapter 1May, Romney Marsh, KentIt was like a scene in a war film: three men running through the night towards a small plane, sagging under the loads they carried on their right shoulders. Moonlight glistened on their eyes and on the shiny black plastic that made the packages so hard to hold. Each time one of them stumbled over a tussock, his load slid forwards and he had to haul it back, straining his arm and neck muscles to screaming point.A tiny slit opened in the plastic. Tim gagged and turned his face away. There was no way he was going to breathe in this stuff.
