                <h2>Chapter 1</h2>
<p>Kelly opened her eyes and struggled to remember where she was. She’d been dreaming. Again.</p>
<p>It was the same dream. In it, she walked slowly towards a door – a wooden door that had been bashed in. It was swinging lazily on its hinges, tempting her to go through it. As she approached, closer and closer, her heart beat faster, and although she knew she was dreaming, she could do nothing to wake herself up.</p>
<p>Her hand pushed in vain at the space where the door would be if it were closed tight, and the hinges creaked as the door swayed back and forth, inviting her to go in and take a look. She had no gun, no cuffs, no radio and no time. But she had to keep going. She already knew what was inside; it was the same every time. But each time she still tried. She would never give up. The squeaking door was her only companion as she walked hazily forward, finally making her way into the room.</p>
<p>There, waiting for her, was the victim: a woman about Kelly’s own age but who appeared much older. She didn’t move as Kelly shuffled towards her on sleepy feet.</p>
<p>The pressure on her throat caught her off guard and struck her with terrifying force. When she woke, she was holding her breath. She could still feel his hands. Air charged into her lungs and she gulped at it greedily. Her heart rate caused her chest to rise and fall, and she took a few minutes to assure herself that it was, after all, just another dream, exactly like the last.</p>
<p>Bastards. All of them.</p>
<p>Her mouth was sticky and she felt the familiar queasiness of a hangover. She’d only been back here five minutes and was supposed to be impressing her new unit. She hadn’t got very far, and screwing the local mountain rescue wasn’t the kind of start she’d hoped for; but still, it had been a pleasant experience. She looked at her watch: it was still early, and she had plenty of time for a pick-me-up coffee. Then she’d have to get to work.</p>
