A journalist must follow the clues, no matter how far that takes her. Casey Benedict, star reporter at the Post, has infiltrated the lives and exposed the lies of countless politicians and power players.

Using her network of contacts, Casey is always on the search for the next big story, no matter how much danger this might place her in, no matter what cost emotionally.

Tipped off by an overheard conversation at an exclusive London nightclub, she begins to investigate the apparent suicide of a wealthy young British man, whose death has left his fiancee and family devastated.

Casey’s determined hunt for the truth will take her from the glitz of St-Tropez to the deserts of Libya and on to the very darkest corners of the human mind.

A fast-paced, contemporary thriller with strong female protagonists, taking place across a variety of well-crafted settings. Watt’s experience as an investigative journalist adds a layer of authenticity to Casey and Miranda’s efforts to unravel the mystery at the heart of this novel. I particularly enjoyed the way To the Lions weaves together the excitement – and disappointment – of following the trail of a story with an insight into the practicalities of publishing a major exposé. Overall an enjoyable read and one to recommend.
