Praise for Jenny Roberts'previous two novels:

"An excellently paced, well-plotted thriller."-Guardian

"Breaking Pointis a well-written, fast-moving filmic story, and you'll enjoy being taken along for the ride."-Time Out

"Breaking Pointencompasses intrigue, action and danger."-G3 magazine

Cameron McGill, now a private investigator, is following yet another unfaithful husband on a client's behalf. But Charles Wilson turns out to be a cross-dresser rather than an adulterer and, when he is murdered outside a sleazy bar in Manchester's Gay Village, Cameron and the bartender Lin Lee are left to face the police-and the possibility that this is only the first in a series of hate killings.

As Cameron digs deeper into the murder of Charles Wilson, her relationship with Lin becomes ever more intimate. But she soon realizes that everyone around her seems to have a secret. Why is the dead man's wife so unconcerned? Why is Charles Wilson's business partner so evasive? And what terrible secret is Lin herself hiding?

But as Cameron pursues these questions, she is confronted with criminal forces so powerful they begin to threaten her very life, and the only way to ensure her survival is to find the answers-fast!

Jenny Robertswas born a boy in Bridlington in 1944 and, after 25 years running a printing business, changed to her correct gender in 1996 at the London Bridge Hospital. She identified as a lesbian shortly afterwards and founded the Libertas! Women's Bookshop in York in 1998.
