Author(s): Buist, Anne
Psychiatrist Natalie King is the expert witness in a vicious child custody battle, and the stakes are high. Getting it wrong means handing a child over to an abuser - or depriving that child of the only father she knows.
Is Jenna gaming the system, or is her ex-husband Malik as dangerous as she suggests? How can Natalie best protect the child? And now that Natalie's pregnant - and still unsure of the child's paternity - how is a growing preoccupation with her own lost father affecting her judgment?
Court dramas, cultural clashes and media backlash create an explosive mixture that forces Natalie to make life and death choices.
How far will a parent go to keep - or save - their child?
