Your boss is a bully. How far would you go to get revenge?
Thomas Smeaton is a powerful man who makes life a living hell for his employees.
When his bullying drives a woman to suicide, three of her colleagues decide it is time to take action before Smeaton destroys any more good people.
Six months later, a car is found submerged in a reservoir, with a single body inside. Suicide? Or murder?
Two people were there the night that car rolled into the depths of Loch Etrin. And one is still missing.
Marty is a head teacher, her boss, Mr Smeaton…suspends her after an allegation from a known troublemaker in school…..
Joe is a PE Teacher, at the Outdoor Education Bothy, Mr Smeaton denies funding and the centre closes…..
Liz is constantly belittled by Mr Smeaton, and can not cope and takes her own life.
Thomas Smeaton is the most unlikeable character I have come across….I’ve known a few people like him in my working life…..detestable bullies…
Just how far can he push his colleagues? And how far will they go before one of them snaps?
This should be required reading for workplace bullies everywhere……!
Excellent, emotive and anger inducing writing by Pat Young…..I enjoyed every moment.

Pat Young writes psychological thrillers. Her debut Till the Dust Settles won the Constable Stag Trophy and an Amazon number 1 best-seller award. Her recent release, One Perfect Witness, sat for a while at number 2 in the Scottish Crime charts, nestled between Rankin and Cleeves and ahead of the mighty Val Mc Dermid!
But Pat never intended to be a writer. Then a story got inside her head, demanding to be told. She is fascinated by what happens when someone suddenly disappears and all her books have that theme.
Pat loves meeting readers and has been on the programme at Bloody Scotland and Tidelines. She is really excited about appearing at this year’s Boswell Book Festival at Dumfries House in May where she plans to launch her fourth psychological thriller Revenge Runs Deep.
