The third Jackson Brodie novel, winner of Richard & Judy's Best Read - literary crime from the number-one bestselling author of Big Sky and Transcription.
In a quiet corner of rural Devon, a six-year-old girl witnesses an appalling crime. Thirty years later the man convicted of the crime is released from prison.
