Publisher's Synopsis

'This searing debut from a retired social worker of 30 years could not be more timely - nor more true ... Harrowing, moving and written with a fearsome authenticity, the story forces the reader to question where the truth lies' Daily Mail

An evil monster exposed?

Or an innocent father condemned?

A scandal will shake a small community to its very foundations.


Two women have come forward to make historical sexual allegations against a pillar of the local community, Matthew Cooper.

The case lands on the desk of inexperienced Social Worker, Kit Goddard, who must remove Cooper from his home and family while the investigation is carried out. Although intrepid and intuitive, she is ill-prepared for such a high-profile case.

Kit finds herself navigating a local minefield of connections and class, reputations and rumour. Unsure whether her interference is a heroic intervention or a hurtful intrusion, she knows one thing: it will have an impact. The question is whether this impact will be to expose a lie, or destroy an innocent life...
