'Compelling, rich in detail and vividly told. Storytelling at its best' Daily Express
Betty is running for her life.
When Betty's husband returns from the war broken and haunted, she knows her marriage is doomed.
Taking a fleeting chance to escape, she goes on the run armed with a new identity. Yet penniless and alone, Betty quickly finds that starting again is much harder than she thought.
And she never imagined it could end in murder . . .
But sometimes you have to keep running if you want to survive.
