Tabitha is not a murderer.

When a body is discovered in her hometown, Tabitha is shocked to find herself being placed in handcuffs.  It must be a mistake.  How could she possibly be a murder suspect?

She knows she’s not.

Tabitha’s entire life is picked apart and scrutinised – her history of depression, her decision to move back…and of course, her past relationship with the victim, her former teacher.  But most unsettling, Tabitha’s own memories of that day are a complete blur.

She thinks she’s not.

As dark, long-buried memories from her childhood came to light.  Tabitha begins to question if she knows what kind of person she is after all.

What if she’s only lying to herself?
