Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Twelve years ago two women were murdered, a tiny girl miraculously surviving the attack. The man imprisoned - Deryk Cheever - is now walking free. But no-one touched by this apparently random act of violence can escape the past.

Cheever's illegitimate son, Charlie, is convinced of his father's innocence, determined to prove it. Leah: now a teenager haunted by terrifying dreams, furious Cheever's free, is unable to piece together her memories of what happened. And Linden, fresh out of Feltham Young Offenders Institute, wondering why his older brother, Victor's, so obsessed with the case. Inexorably the connections between them emerge from the past's shadows

Engaging, believable characters, painful family secrets and tension which mounts to a nail-biting climax make this an addictive, well-plotted, gritty, thriller.
