I wasn’t alone. I had been. I had locked and double-checked every outer door, and even connecting doors, as I moved along. I know I had. This was like the bad old days, the ones I thought I’d put behind me for ever. And this house didn’t have a panic room.
With her abusive ex-husband in prison, Jane Cowan finally has the confidence to accept a new job: head teacher of the primary school in the Kent village of Wrayford. But her new life is soon disrupted when an intruder breaks into the school and later when a child is badly hurt in the playground – only Jane suspects it was not an accident. Are the two incident connected?
Jane must become the pursuer and not the prey if she is to protect the pupils in her charge. However, when those around her begin to act suspiciously and Jane finds that she herself is a target, fears and doubts that she thought left behind begin to resurface.
