A new cop. A fresh start. A dark secret.
It’s the blisteringly hot summer of 1976, and WPC Samantha Barrie is Wyre Hall police station’s newest recruit.
When young girls start to go missing, Sam finds herself at the centre of an investigation which goes far deeper than anyone expected, exposing divisions in both the community and the police force itself.
As Sam gets pulled further and further into the dark and seedy underbelly of her town, she finds herself battling against not only organised criminals and the prejudices of her new colleagues, but also her own demons.
Who can she trust? How can she keep safe those she’s pledged to protect? How can she keep her head when forced to confront her own terrifying past?
Blue Bird is the debut novel from Trish Finnegan, a police thriller with a twist. A story of dark secrets, and innocence lost.
