Bicklebury is a small village of some three hundred inhabitants, a church and a pub, but no shop, no school, and certainly no crime - until two ex-cons decide it is the ideal location to pull a robbery. Derek Jarvis and his daughter Hannah are home when the two armed men break in, and Derek, fearing for their safety, urges Hannah not to resist. The tactic backfires as one of the men brutally attacks her, leaving her broken and revolted. Derek's marriage and his daughter are never the same again.

As his family falls apart, he finds his wife and daughter blame him for what happened, refusing to forgive him even after the men are caught. And so Derek Jarvis, a mild-mannered accountant, conceives a plan to avenge his family. But Derek has never truly looked at himself or anticipated the terrifying twist his quest for revenge may take, as it leads him down the darkest back alleys of the psyche, strips away his controls and confronts his soul with a shocking choice . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is not a word wasted in Margaret Yorke's deftly constructed crime novels, yet they have a hinterland greater than many novels twice the length. Her understanding of the faultlines that run through human beings is second to none * Diane Setterfield *
Superior and scary . . . with an ingenious sting in the tale * Daily Telegraph *
The mistress of the skillfully-spun suspense novel . . . her quiet, unemphatic style of narrative makes the story a compelling read * Sunday Telegraph *
Yorke, a steely mistress of the matter-of-fact presentation of household horrors, has never written a more artfully assembled chiller * Sunday Times *
