Random House, Inc. Now, at last, the brutal and disturbing climax to the Garnethill trilogy.
Maureen O’Donnell is facing the darkest episode in her life. She owes more than she makes in a year in back taxes; Angus Farrell, the psychologist who murdered her boyfriend, is up for trial, with Maureen as the reluctant star witness; and her abuser has arrived back in Glasgow in time for the birth of her sister’s baby. On top of it all, Maureen -- who identifies all too readily with the underdogs of this world -- has become embroiled in someone else’s family feud. As Angus’s trial approaches, once again Maureen is under threat, and this time she has very few protectors.
