When Anna's husband tells her that he's been offered a job in a different part of the country, she's as happy to move as he is. While she enjoys city life, her second career as a novelist is going nowhere, and she hopes that in the small Dorset village inspiration might return. After the move, however, she finds it's quite a different story. With few ideas for her new novel and little else to do, life in the country isn't quite what Anna had imagined. But all that changes when Anna discovers something unexpected: Rebecca Fisher, the notorious child murderess of the 1960s, was the previous owner of their cottage. The more she learns about Rebecca Fisher, the more determined Anna becomes to reveal the truth, a truth which has remained unexplored for over thirty years. But someone else has other ideas - and an unseen enemy threatens her marriage, her safety and ultimately her life...

Review quote
