'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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Allegation's subject of historical abuse could not be more timely or alarming in this smashing debut from RG Adams. Social worker Kit Goddard is an utterly convincing character negotiating an obstacle course of prejudice, gossip and false truths. I hope we see more of her * The Book of Forgotten Authors *
Thought provoking and page turning at the same time. Kit Goddard is a fantastically drawn character and I look forward to reading more in the series. -- Jenny Blackhurst
