But that's impossble for Anne Marie, because 40 years ago, when she was eleven, she killed a little boy. She is trying to make peace by telling her story to journalist Joe Donovan.

Professional reviews

"Martyn Waites is a rarity--a fiction author who is also a splendid narrator! Anne Marie murdered another child when she was 11 years old. Now an adult with her own child, she's come back to the town where it happened, and she's telling her story to journalist Joe Donovan. Soon another young person is murdered, and Anne Marie wonders if she could have done it during one of her terrible blackouts. Waites delivers all the tension and emotion of the story as well as a strong sense of place--Tyneside, England. As author and narrator, Waites gives listeners a violent picture of the world with just enough hope to keep despair at bay. This graphic story is not for the fainthearted. S.G.B.
