You'd kill to protect your child - wouldn't you? From the number one best-selling author of My Sister's Secret.
When radio presenter Anna Graves and her baby are attacked on the beach by a crazed teenager, Anna reacts instinctively to protect her daughter. But her life falls apart when the schoolboy dies from his injuries. The police believe Anna's story - until the autopsy results reveal something more sinister.
A frenzied media attack sends Anna into a spiral of self-doubt. Her precarious mental state is further threatened when she receives a chilling message from someone claiming to be the Ophelia Killer, responsible for a series of murders 20 years ago. Is Anna as innocent as she claims? And is murder forgivable if committed to save your child's life?

"I could see it playing out like a movie as I was reading.... I loved it." (Novelkicks)
I enjoyed the suspense of the story and its twists and turns but squirmed frequently at the poor writing and overuse of certain words. The reader did her best.
I thought this book was gripping and the story is well crafted and characters well drawn. I wouldn't recommend it to friends though because it is disturbing and dark. I found it a bit gratuitous in it's description of murder. It was good at keeping me guessing although does become clear about 2 thirds the way through and is then just frustrating and uncomfortable.

There was something in this that kept me interested and it started quite well. Unfortunately, by about half way through, it became increasingly implausible. The Police and Social Services didn't behave as they would and it just became a bit tedious.
