'This is a real page-turner. I was gripped from the first page. Great characters and would make a very good TV drama.'
Harry Dunn is an ordinary man living an ordinary life before a series of events turn his world upside down. He is forced to run as his life implodes.
He hides away among the destitute in a prosperous market town where he befriends Mary, a woman tormented by her own demons. They have to trust one other because there is nobody else.
Harry is on the very brink before a surprise inheritance offers him a lifeline. But it comes at a price. Both he and Mary are forced to confront their pasts as they try to unravel the mystery at the heart of Harry's downfall.
What they discover is evil from the past that refuses to die - barbarity carried through time in black hearts.
Both of them have suffered, but they find that others have paid a far higher price.
