Description of this Book

When single mum Joanna shares a rumour at the school gates - desperate to ingratiate herself with the clique of mothers at her son's new school - there's no going back . . . Rumour has it that a notorious child killer is living under a new identity, in the small town of Flinstead-on-Sea. Sally McGowan was just ten years old when she stabbed little Robbie Harris to death over 47 years ago - no photos of her exist since her release as a young woman. So who is the supposedly reformed killer who now lives amongst them? How dangerous can one rumour become? And how far will Joanna go to protect her loved ones from harm, when she realizes what it is she's unleashed? Joanna is going to regret the day she ever said a word . . .
