Driving to the cottage she's newly inherited, Ellie is so excited that she barely notices when the car bumps against something. That evening Ellie hears a news flash; a man was seriously injured in a hit and run.
Could she have been responsible for putting a man in hospital? Unable to hold the doubts at bay, she decides to visit the victim, little knowing that the consequences of this decision will change her life forever.

Praise for the author: 'Beautifully worked and with a sharp eye for the menace in the commonplace' (Daily Mail)
The story line kept my mind engaged during the reading. The characters were believable and in keeping with the plot.
It was paced in a way which led the reader/listener on into the story in a way which did not drag but neither did it overwhelm with detail all in a rush. Of course the quality of the narration helped with this
Ellie enchanted and infuriated me by turns. A maddening obsessive betrayed by her sense of guilt. This was a relatively straight reading by Laura Kirman - a reading rather than a performance - which was well paced, articulate and engaging.
Right at the end came a twist I did not see coming - a life affirming twist. Out of evil good can come. You will know it when you get to it.
A good book enhanced by the reader. There was a naturalness about the reading; almost touching on simplicity. This takes real talent to achieve. Some readers try too hard, they overcomplicate their reading with effects; they place themselves between the book and the listener. Laura Kirman brought this book to life. I shall look forward to hearing more of her work.
really loved this and couldn't stop listening to it. would say that it is a little predictable in parts but it had me hooked.
An avid listener of fiction, it almost makes the long journey to work worth it.
I pretty much guessed the outcome quite early on however I enjoyed it non the less
Having read Penny Hancocks other two books Tideline and The darkening Hour I was quite disappointed this book wasn't of the same standard. This story seems a little far fetched with too many coincidences, to be believable.
