Summary

Only a mother

Erica Wright lives a quiet, lonely life in her two-bed end of terrace. Her front door hasn't been graffitied in more than a year, but that's soon about to change - her son, Craig, is being released from prison.

Could believe him

Local journalist Luke Harding is determined to warn the public. As the person who covered the arrest and trial all those years ago, he knows the kind of predator Craig really is.

Could bury the truth

When Luke's worst fears are realised after a woman is attacked days after Craig's release, he becomes obsessed with trying to prove that Craig was behind it.

Could forgive what he has done.

Erica is worried, too - but how can a mother turn her back on her son? And how far will she go to protect him?
