Utterly compelling.’ Daily Mail’What is wrong with you?’Laura has spent most of her life being judged.

She’s seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous. Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes, that doesn’t mean she’s a killer.

Bitter experience has taught her how easy it is to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew.

She trusts no one: good people are capable of terrible deeds.

But how far will she go to find peace?Innocent or guilty, everyone is damaged.
