Summary

They came for me, just like I knew they would. Luke had been dead for just three days. Rose Wilks’ life is shattered when her newborn baby Joel is admitted to intensive care. Emma Hatcher has all that Rose lacks. Beauty. A loving husband. A healthy son.

Until tragedy strikes and Rose is the only suspect. Now, having spent nearly five years behind bars, Rose is just weeks away from freedom. Her probation officer Cate must decide whether Rose is remorseful for Luke s death, or whether she remains a threat to society. As Cate is drawn in, she begins to doubt her own judgment.

Critic reviews

"Ruth Dugdall's novels are intelligent and gripping, with a sophisticated psychological sensibility. She is a huge talent." (Sophie Hannah)
"Impressive in its unflinching realism… a dark and haunting psychological thriller that possesses both depth and sensitivity." ( Crime Time)
"Always a page-turner... Just when I thought I'd got it sussed, I'm proved wrong. This is a clever and suspenseful story told in an engaging style." (thebookbag.co.uk)

Not What I Was Expecting

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I just didn't find it very inventive.

If you’ve listened to books by Ruth Dugdall before, how does this one compare?

This is my first by the author, and though I didn't love it, I would listen to other books by her, if they sounded intriguing.

What aspect of Penny McDonald’s performance would you have changed?

Her performance was fine

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not
