‘This is a brilliant storyline that has in recent years been very topical and Tana Collins captures the essence of it all perfectly in this book. It makes for a hard read at times because of the topic but packs a shocking punch without being too graphic. The story is intense, heart breaking and sensitive.  A perfect writing balance’
Susan Hampson

‘This story is about past evils, so dark – a story of murder, buried history and an innocent caught in the crossfire. An excellent read’
