What she doesn't know is that she's stepping into a nightmare - one that will end with a child dead and her in a cell awaiting trial for murder.

She knows she's made mistakes. But she's not guilty - at least not of murder. Which means someone else is...'Creepy, engrossing, and oh-so-hard to put down' JP DELANEY, author of The Girl Before
