A face from the past. A secret best left buried.
When Gareth Maloney walks into Jo’s bookshop in the sleepy town of Banktoun, the life she thought she’d rebuilt starts to unravel.
Because Jo recognises this man.
The man who attacked her and her friend Claire, all those years ago, leaving Claire paralysed, and Jo tortured by the memories, unable to forgive herself for what happened.
A desperate Jo turns to her friend, local policeman, Sergeant Davie Gray. The man she met after the attack. The kind, caring man who had vowed to look out for her since her mother’s death.
But he doesn’t believe her
As Jo battles her demons, a masked man is attacking young girls on the old railway track. Convinced it is connected to Maloney’s return, Jo takes matters into her own hands.
With devastating consequences.
Fans of Big Little Lies, Broadchurch and Dark Places will love this claustrophobic small town psychological mystery.
