‘He did kill. Kill and kill and kill.’
Tess’s number one priority is her three-year-old daughter Poppy. But splitting up with Poppy’s father, Jason, means that she cannot always be there to keep her daughter safe.
When Tess finds a disturbing drawing, dark and menacing, among Poppy’s brightly-coloured paintings, she is convinced that Poppy has witnessed something terrible. Something that her young mind is struggling to put into words.

Tess will strive to protect Poppy, whatever it takes. But when she doesn’t know what, or who, she is protecting her from, how can she know who to trust..?
