Summary

A new life in Wales has not turned out to be the rural fantasy that social worker Jess imagined when she left London for a simpler, more fulfilling future. And it seems there's no escape from evil - even in such a beautiful landscape.

As she takes on a new project, she learns that the body of a young boy has been found in the woods close to her home. Her worst nightmare becomes a reality as she realises he was the child she was supposed to protect.

While her professional life becomes harder to deal with, Jess is forced to come to terms with her own past. She finds herself crossing the line from investigator to victim, forced to question the very basis of her own identity.

Critic reviews

"An accomplished and interesting debut....This clever and disquieting novel shows Ms Emerson to be a writer to watch." (Sunday Telegraph)
